Ernst Hammes : Healthy Horses

Horse Care with Effective Micro-organisms



This practical and informative book demonstrates how microbes can play a beneficial role in animal husbandry. Developed by Teruo Higa, a Japanese professor of agriculture, Effective Micro-organisms (EM) are a cost-effective means to maintain horse well-being and improve stable conditions. A balanced microbial structure in the digestive system of the animal is the base for utilizing its generic potential, and EM offers just that. From growing and preparing fodder to treating hooves and keeping the surroundings healthy, 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.

Horse keepers love their horses. They know their animals intimately and realize that, with the introduction of EM, horses become more peaceful and better prepared for performances of excellence. They are surprised by the multiple uses of EM.



After studying agronomy, Ernst Hammes was an agricultural consultant for German state authorities for most of his life. When, as an all-around expert, he got involved with Effective Micro-organisms in 1998, he knew immediately: This is it! A solution for agriculture and the environment. So he became an expert in EM as well – studying, experimenting, writing articles and books, and introducing EM in many German farms, stables, companies, and households.
