The UVM Morgan Horse Farm hosted another fantastic Equine Reproduction Workshop on April 5 and 6, 2024. They had a great turnout of students and participants from the equine community.

The teaching agenda included lectures on mare and stallion physiology, breeding program management, foaling and neonates, hereditary disorders, artificial insemination, industry opportunities, and how to make mating decisions based on breeding ethics and philosophy.
