One of the aims of Kentucky Equine Research is to provide knowledge and guidance to horse owners. As owners use these tools to optimize the way they feed and manage their horses, they will see results in improved equine health and performance. To gain these benefits, horse owners can access a number of resources.
To produce and distribute its superior line of equine feeds and supplements, KER works with selected feed manufacturers in all parts of the world. At each Team Member company, staff members have received extensive training in equine nutrition management. These feed professionals have years of experience in evaluating rations, looking at young and mature horses, and suggesting management steps to prevent or alleviate feed-related problems in growing or exercising horses. With a line of feeds designed specifically to balance the soil types and forages present in any location, KER Team Members can recommend a feed product to match the age, use, and individual requirements of every horse.
