This practical and informative volume demonstrates how microbes can play a beneficial role in animal husbandry. Developed by Teruo Higa, a Japanese professor of agriculture, effective microorganisms (EM) are a cost-effective means to maintain horse well-being and improve stable conditions. From growing and preparing fodder to treating hooves and keeping a healthy ambiance, this guide addresses the needs of professional breeders, private horse owners, veterinarians, farmers, and feed manufacturers. This handbook also includes detailed accounts by veterinarians, healing practitioners, and others who have used EM to their advantage.
