This study was designed to determine if gastric emptying is delayed following ingestion of a grain and corn oil meal compared to a meal of grain alone.
This study was designed to examine whether short-term adaptation to a high-fat diet would affect insulin sensitivity in aged horses.
This study was conducted to evaluate how cracking, grinding, or steam processing affects starch digestibility of corn, using glycemic response as an indirect measure of prececal starch digestibility.
Six trained Thoroughbred horses were used in a two-period switchback design experiment to evaluate the effect that chromium supplementation has on metabolic response to a standardized exercise test (SET) on a high-speed treadmill.
A study was designed to evaluate whether adding fat to a grain meal would affect glucose and insulin responses when the level of grain intake remained the same.
This study was designed to test the efficacy and safety of feeding a protected sodium bicarbonate product to treat hindgut acidosis in horses fed a high-grain ration.
Muscle glycogen is a potentially limiting substrate for horses during intense exercise. Low-starch, high-fat concentrates have become popular for performance horses, but their effect on muscle glycogen usage and repletion is unclear.
A study was conducted to investigate the nutritional value of GM (Golden Max) for horses and compare it to the typical forms of processed corn commonly fed to horses, cracked (CC) and steam-flaked corn (SF).
Heart rate variability (HRV) records the fluctuations between successive heartbeats, thereby measuring the function of the autonomic nervous system. HRV has been successfully used to study stress and behavior in many species. This study examined the effects of NSC levels on equine stress and behavior using HRV indices.
Using 30 different diets, KER calculated digestibilities for numerous diets, yielding valuable information on nutrient requirements and interactions.
