Rutgers University’s Equine Science Center is keeping its Horse Management Seminar free and in a virtual format for another year, because of pandemic restrictions.
The series starts on February 8, and each webinar will feature two speakers who will focus on “Recent Advances” in Health, Genetics, and Nutrition. Each evening will focus on one topic area and will end with an “Ask the Expert Live” panel hosted by Dr Carey Williams, Equine Extension Specialist and the Associate Director of Outreach for the Rutgers Equine Science Center, as well as the evening’s speakers.
Attendees will have time to ask questions about the presentations and are also encouraged to bring questions to the webinars based upon the subject area for that night.
The Horse Management Seminar will consist of three Tuesday evening webinars, running from 6.30pm to 8.30pm (EST).
