2018 Breeder Seminars
This year’s Breeders Seminars in August, at Hunter Valley and Wagga Wagga,
were very well attended and almost at capacity.
Wagga Wagga Seminar
Feedback from the groups was extremely positive
once again, members heard from Australia’s leading
equine veterinarians and industry professionals and
set off with newly absorbed knowledge ready for the
upcoming season.
Topics included; Mare reproduction, Mare cycle
management, Foaling, Neonatal Foals, Foal Farriery,
Stallion Physiology, X-Rays and Scoping, Nutrition on
Stud Farms, Weanling to Sale Ring, Health & Wellbeing
and current challenges. A huge thank you to our
lecturers for their time, quality presentation and wealth
of knowledge shared with our attendees.
Scone Seminar
A major focus on the drought was a key indicator from
most lecturers, all farms and breeders preparing and
rearing horses, are looking at reformed nutrition plans
and developed information of agronomy requirements
leading into spring.
Many of the attendees had travelled from all around
the state and a few inter-states, which has our board
looking into the possibility of running seminars in other
locations such as Sydney, we welcome all feedback from
our members and look forward to hearing your ideas
for locations and topics that would benefit our members
next year.
