International Perspectives: The Future of Nonhuman Primate Resources, Proceedings of the Workshop Held April 17-19, 2002

The way forward for nonhuman primate (NHP) assets is a priority of scientists, veterinarians, and investment specialists. An April 2002 workshop introduced contributors from around the globe to debate quite a few features of the problem resembling present shortfalls and excesses in NHP breeding and exportation courses, the prestige of breeding and conservation courses the world over, the advance of particular pathogen-free colonies, problems in transporting NHP, and demanding situations within the administration of NHP colonies.

While a number of requirements or feeding suggestions did not change dramatically, there are some differences worth highlighting – especially some of those that will impact individuals feeding equine athletes and growing horses. e. e. 0043 ounces per pound of body weight). While this may seem intimidating to a lot of people, it is actually quite simple to determine a horse’s requirements (simply multiply the requirement by the weight of your horse) and this emphasis on total amount consumed per day versus the concentration in the feed was done for several reasons.

However, the limitations on conducting horse research (such as small numbers of animals used because of the cost, hesitation to sacrifice animals to look at nutrient deposition in the body, difficulty in detecting small improvements in performance because of the many factors that affect it) make it difficult to be as precise in determining the nutritional requirements of horses compared to other species. Regardless, the emphasis on calculating requirements based on a total amount consumed per day (on a body weight basis) certainly will impact the way many people view feeding horses and will hopefully emphasize the importance of considering the roughage portion of the equine diet and not just the grain portion.

Obviously as pasture associated laminitis occurs at pasture then the easiest way to avoid the condition is to prevent access to pasture and to feed forage alternatives that are known to be low in rapidly fermentable material. For the majority of horses total restriction is not always a viable or desired option for financial, welfare and health reasons. e. have an increased risk of developing) laminitis. It is therefore increasingly recognised that identifying individual animals at risk, before they suffer serious episodes of laminitis, will potentially be of great benefit; bearing in mind the difficulties in treating and managing recurrent and chronic laminitis.
