RIRDC launches two new publications

Two new publications worthy of mention have recently been released by the Rural Industries Research and Development Corporation.

1. Plants Poisonous to Horses: An Australia Field Guide

This book is a guide for horse owners to help them prevent plant poisoning in their horses. It clearly outlines the factors that influence the risk of plant poisoning and ways to reduce this risk.

2. Risk Factors for Injuries in Thoroughbred Racehorses

Lameness, or Musculoskeletal injuries, are the most common health problem in Thoroughbred racehorses and represent an economic cost to industry in terms of treatment cost and lost opportunity to race. This publication contains the results of various studies.
Both these publications are available for RIRDC at www.rirdc.gov.au/eshop
