The Texas A&M Equine Reproductive Short Course is designed for owners and breeding managers who want to learn the most efficient methods for ensuring the success of their breeding programs. The three day course will include classroom sessions on anatomy and physiology of the mare and stallion, control of the estrous cycle, gestation and foaling, feeding the broodmare and young horse, and estrous cycle manipulation of mares. Hands-on laboratory activities are scheduled each day and will include semen collection and evaluation, estrous detection, artificial insemination, body condition scoring, perineal conformation evaluation of the mare and foaling management. The course content includes a broad range of topics that are useful for horse owners in any segment of the breeding industry.
Each short course will have limited enrollment to ensure adequate time and animals to allow every participant to develop the skills they desire. Enrollment will be confirmed on a first-come, first serve basis. In addition to the lectures and laboratory sessions, the registration fee includes lunch, refreshments, and a certificate of completion of the course for all three days.
Numerous hotels are available throughout College Station and Bryan. Make your reservations early, as prominent events are continually happening in this area.
