Our Nutrition Laboratory
Life Data operates a comprehensive nutrient analysis laboratory dedicated to the purpose of establishing nutrient targets for horses. Currently, over 80 targets have been established (4x the quantity published in the NRC guidleine).
Each nutrient has a correlation with every other nutreint, making it vital to understand how to delvier a balanced diet. The correlations vary from strong positive to strong negative and all levels in between.
Thirty years ago, these targets were used to develop Farrier's Formula® by focusing on the nutrients that affect the dermal tissue organ.
Today, these targets are studied to understand how the needs of a horse varies based on its breed, environment and occupation.
