The Texas A&M AgriLife Equine Reproductive Management Short Course took place in College Station January 9-11, 2019. Registration was limited to 15 participants to allow for in depth hands-on learning and one-on-one instruction. Participants came from seven different states, including Texas. Subjects over stallion and mare management were extensively covered with morning lectures and afternoon practicums. Guest speakers included industry professionals, Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine faculty, and Animal Science faculty. Thanks to the Department of Animal Science equine herd, many participants get to participant in reproductive practices, such as collecting a stallion and inseminating a mare. “This is a really neat opportunity to provide education on equine reproduction to a small group. It provides individuals the tools and skills necessary to proficiently manage their breeding operation,” says Texas A&M AgriLife Horse Specialist Chelsie Huseman.
The Equine Reproductive Management Short Course has been a popular short course ever since its inception in the late 1970s. It is offered annually in January. Due to its immense popularity, discussions for two short courses in 2020 are underway!
