    Default MS in Equine Nutrition? Worth while?

    So... I'm in my um, early 40's, and trying to figure out what to do when I grow up. I have a BS in Animal Sci w/chemistry minor and have been in a non-animal related industry for a while. I would love to relocate out of the Dressage-Wastelands but for me to do so I will have to go back to school for something... whether its lean/6-sigma/black belt (major yawn) or health/safety (more interesting) or something completely unrelated that I might love! So... I love horses/animals and thought about an MS in Equine Nutrition.

    Anyone have one? What job are you doing? Are you making decent $? Would you do it again?

    I don't think you need an MS in Equine Nutrition to make decent money in the feed industry. You can make close to 6 figures working for the large animal nutrition companies depending on how seriously you take it and how hard you want to work. I have worked for 2 of the top 10 in the world in animal nutrition and done quite well.
