Horse educator Larissa Bilston talks about nutrition

Larissa Bilston

Horse health / Care

Larissa graduated from the University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Agricultural Science degree with first class honours in the early 1990s.  She has travelled throughout Australia and internationally as both a science communicator and animal nutritionist. Larissa has worked in the stock feed industry as an animal nutritionist providing support to the horse, beef, dairy and poultry industries.

She is a founding partner of Farmalogic Pty Ltd, a Brisbane based company producing supportive nutritional supplements for horses, backyard poultry and show cattle.   Larissa grew up in regional Victoria and has a lifetime love of horses, dogs, cats and dressage riding. She now lives in Brisbane with her husband and three lovely teenagers and is also known as the crazy chicken lady of Waterford!   Larissa is passionate about helping animal owners make good decisions regarding feeding and welfare. The Equine Vit&Min and Farmalogic range is the culmination of Larissa’s belief that horse owners can and should understand more about feeding their horses because the basics are not complicated. She wishes to help them sort out the marketing myths from the scientific facts and provides practical animal feeding and management advice through lectures, clinics, social media and individual consultations.
