UVM Equine Reproduction Workshop



The UVM Morgan Horse Farm in Weybridge, VT, the William H. Miner Agricultural Research Institute of Chazy, N.Y., and the Middlebury Large Animal Clinic of Middlebury, VT will host their 23rd annual Reproduction Workshop beginning the afternoon of Friday, April 1 and continuing for a full day on Saturday, April 2, 2011.

Dr. Donald Hunt and Dr. Molly Witters 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. Other topics discussed may include Parasites, Equine Herpes Virus (EHV), and Colic.

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. Door prizes are awarded throughout the workshop. Spaces are limited to 25 participants. Call the UVM Morgan Horse Farm at (802) 388-2011, or email uvm.morgans@uvm.edu for further information.
