Eighth Annual Horse Management Field Days Will Be Held Regionally
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee Institute of Agriculture is planning three in-person field days focused on horse management. Presentations and hands-on educational materials will be of interest for equine owners of all experience levels.
Presentations will be provided by faculty from UT’s Department of Animal Science, UT Extension and the UT College of Veterinary Medicine. The topics this year will focus on emergency preparedness, internal parasite management, nutrition and more. Trending topics in the equine industry will also be discussed with a Q and A session.
“The equine industry plays an important role in the state’s economy and is also an important part of Tennessee’s heritage,” says Carrie Castille, senior vice chancellor and senior vice president of UTIA. “The Horse Management Field Days offer equine owners across the state the opportunity to access high-quality information from UTIA experts — information that can help ensure the health of Tennessee horses and that ownership remains a part of our heritage for future generations.”
