Equine nutrition and management, especially forage production and utilization, silage and haylage production, conservation and utilization of forages in equine nutrition, hygienic quality of feeds, equine welfare in relation to feeding and nutrition.
Understand factors affecting forage nutritive and hygienic quality in relation to equine feeding, and how these factors affect the horse. Implement and use this knowledge to improve the forage production, conservation and utilization in equine nutrition and feeding, as well as for improving forage hygienic quality. Develop objective methods for the description of hygienic quality in forages.
