National forage survey now launched: Your opinion is wanted

National forage survey now launched: Your opinion is wanted

Myerscough College, in conjunction with Waltham, is carrying out a research project with the aim to assess the quality of forage that we are currently producing here in the UK.  The first stage of this research is to gauge the attitudes and opinions of horse owners towards the provision of forage in the diet, with particular focus on sourcing of forage, selection criteria and feeding strategies. 

The second stage is to analyse forage samples from around the UK to assess the quality of forage that we are producing as a country.

The project aims to be the biggest of its kind, gathering a large amount of information from across the whole of the UK to allow us to understand the current situation that horse owners face with regards to forage provision and purchase.

For taking part in the study, participants can WIN the chance to have a full nutritional analysis of their forage done. The results of the forage analysis will form the second stage of the research to gauge forage quality.
