The determination and management of performance-limitation in sport horses is very challenging, especially within a short time period before an important competition. In this book, experts disclose their experience on: what do we know about the poor performance horse? And on the gastrointestinal tract: medical, nutritional and surgical considerations; could it be the heart? Could it be the muscles? Monitoring orthopaedic health in competition horses; could it be the foot? Could it be neurological? Cases where physiotherapy helped to make a difference; And, could it be respiratory?

Forage conservation - and silage production in particular - is an extremely important topic of high priority in global food security. Achieving nutritional sufficiency for the world's growing human population in all regions requires the best possible use of agricultural land; and thereafter the reduction of losses during storage and its efficient utilization in animal feeding. A new challenge to the agricultural industry is posed by the increasing use of agriculturally produced biomass as renewable energy sources. Low-loss conservation and subsequent storage of biomass is also crucial for this purpose. Consequently, forage conservation must be increased and improved by employing suitable technologies in the context of sustainable development across the globe. An intensified international exchange of knowledge and experience in forage conservation will help fulfil this demand. These proceedings outline the actual challenges which have to be met and the options which are already available for use in practice as result of current scientific research and industrial development in this field.

"Im Winter ruht der Wagen, in Sommer der Schlitten, aber nie ruht das Pferd." ("The wagon rests in winter, the sleigh in summer, but the horse, never.") This old German proverb brings home the importance of the horse to the farmer in pre-industrial America. For these hard-pressed tillers of the soil in rural Pennsylvania, a horse was a prized possession; it provided transportation, motive power, companionship, and fertilizer. Few crises on a farm were more worrisome than an ailing horse. Just as every household had a "domestic physician" book packed with home remedies for human diseases, so most farmers owned a "Pferdartz" (horse doctor book) to care for their animals. These folk medical cures involved herbs, minerals, poultices, bleeding techniques, and even mystical incantations. Some were bizarre in the extreme. How to treat a mad dog bite? Press the bloody carcass of a freshly killed pigeon into the bite to absorb the poison. How to kill bot flies? Wash the horse with a suspension of gun powder and pepper in a mixture of rum and urine. In The Nineteenth Century Horse Doctor, Heindel and Rapp, two Pennsylvania German researchers in drug development and medical botany, translate and analyze over 100 veterinary recipes in a number of popular early 19th century Pferdartz from the Moravian and the Pennsylvania Dutch traditions.
