This course expands the foundation in concepts in equine nutrition including digestive physiology of horses, nutrient requirements for different classes of horses and feed management. Ration evaluation and balancing, as well as problem solving will be a core component to this course.


Student Learning Outcomes

1. Describe the methods for determining nutrient requirements in horses


2. List and explain basic requirements for certain classes of horses


3. Describe different feed types, their nutritional profile and uses


4. Describe the anatomy and physiology of the equine digestive tract


5. Evaluate and formulate feeding programs and solve problems accordingly


6. Review and interpret the literature regarding clinical nutritional diseases, nutrient requirement determination, supplement effectiveness, etc.

G Hodge: Justification- describe what type of changes are being requested and why, ie Course prerequisites are being revised to .....

Syllabus student evaluation methods do not match CIM form.

Topical outline needs to be more detailed than 100% Equine Nutrition; provide some of the details shown in syllabus

See syllabus checklist (attached)
Edit syllabus: item 9 statement on safety since students will be working with horses
Edit syllabus: items 11 and 12 Instructor's policy on late assignments and attendance
Edit syllabus: Course Format- add statement on how the course and field trip will be conducted for distance education sections. How will you handle student presentations and guest presentations?

ABGS Reviewer Comments:
- No suggestions for improvement. The CAF indicates that all that is being changed are the prerequisites. If that's the case, why the discussion about other parts of the CAF for a course that appears to already be taught? RESPONSE: Changing prerequisites is a major action because it could affect curriculum requirements. The CAF is the opportunity for the college to review all course material
renutt (Mon, 20 Apr 2015 14:54:40 GMT): Rollback: Please make the following changes and resubmit; all parties will approve and get this to ABGS after changes are made: -Update pre-requisites so there are no repetitions - update grading scale to follow the traditional greater than or equal to and less than or equal to scale. If you need an example, please email robin_clements@ncsu.edu

sepratt2 (Tue, 23 Aug 2016 18:07:42 GMT): Sorry for the delay. I think I've made all of the required changes. The equine unit visit is more of a demonstration, than major horse handling, but I've included the wording from other courses that do have more animal use. It is also voluntary, and is videotaped for DE students. DE students also have the opportunity to record their presentations.
