Grass for grazing or forage production contains variable amounts of carbohydrates, which often are described as the good (fiber), the bad (sugar) and the ugly (fructans) in relation to prevention, and development of diseases like insulin resistance and laminitis. There is a large variation in carbohydrate content in grass, and especially the content and digestion of sugar and fructans in grass is debated among horse owners. Furthermore, the fiber content and digestibility largely determines the energy content in grass and forage for horses, and is therefore of interest for both high- and low-performing horses. The aim of this project is to investigate the content of the different carbohydrate fractions in different grass species and to study their digestion in the equine gastrointestinal tract. This project will contribute with important knowledge regarding selection of grass species and harvesting or grazing regimes for different types of horses.

Gress til beite eller grovfôrproduksjon inneholder varierende mengder av karbohydrater, som ofte beskrives som de gode (fiber), de onde (sukker) og de grusomme (fruktaner) i forhold til forebyggelse og utvikling av sykdommer som insulinresistens og forfangenhet. Karbohydratinnholdet i gress varierer mye og spesielt er innholdet og fordøyelsen av sukker og fruktaner i gress mye diskutert blant hesteeiere. I tillegg har innholdet og fordøyeligheten til fiberen stor effekt på energiinnholdet i gress og grovfôr til hester, og er derfor av stor betydning for både høyt- og lavtytende hester. Formålet med dette prosjektet er å undersøke innholdet av forskjellige karbohydratfraksjoner i forskjellige gressarter og undersøke deres fordøyelse i hestens fordøyelseskanal. Dette prosjektet vil bidra med viktig kunnskap om valg av gressarter og høstings- eller beiteregimer for ulike hestetyper.

Conventional technology is virtually unable to measure complete GHG budgets of drained organic soils, which may provide misleading results. So, global estimates of GHG emissions are based on coarse assumptions that don’t take into account the complexity of agroecosystems. Better data are needed for …

Hälta eller lateralitet: när är en rörelseasymmetri betydelsefull?
Marie Rhodin, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences

Projektnummer: H-17-47-286 • Status: Pågående • Ansökningsår: 2017

Motor laterality, such as left or right-handedness, is a well-known asymmetric phenomenon in both humans and animals, incl. horses. Concurrently, lameness caused by orthopaedic injury is a common cause for asymmetry. In our study of riding horses in training, 73 % had motion asymmetries, warranting …

Icelandic horses are increasingly popular in Sweden and Norway. Their strength lies in their unique gaits, however, in lame horses this trait becomes a weakness. Evaluating not only lameness but also the leg of origin for lameness in any gait other than trot is exceptionally challenging. Today, we …
