19th Annual Equine Reproduction Workshop - March 30-31, 2007


The UVM Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge, Vermont, the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute of Chazy, New York and the Middlebury Large Animal Clinic of Middlebury, Vermont will host their 19th annual Reproduction Workshop beginning the afternoon of Friday, March 30 and continuing for a full day on Saturday, March 31, 2007.


Dr. Donald Hunt and associates are skilled veterinary practitioners in equine reproduction and physiology.    They will discuss managing the uses of lights, hormones, and ultrasound in your breeding program, anatomy and physiology of the mare and stallion, embryo transfer, artificial insemination and foaling/neonatal care.


The topics covered by Dr. Josie Davis of the University of Vermont’s Equine Studies Program and Katie Ballard, Director of Research and Equine Program Coordinator at Miner Institute, will include updates on materials, techniques and procedures for collecting, processing and transporting fresh-cooled and frozen stallion semen.


The staff of the UVM Morgan Horse Farm, Miner Institute and the Veterinarians will guide workshop participants through hands-on participation and demonstrations of ultrasound, teasing procedures, semen collection and processing, artificial insemination and frozen semen handling.  The important step of training the inexperienced stallion to the breeding phantom is also demonstrated.


The registration fee of $250 includes workshop materials and meals.  Space is limited to 25 participants and will fill well in advance.  Call the UVM Morgan Horse Farm at (802) 388-2011, Monday-Friday, for further information.
