College Station, Texas – Broodmare and foal management is the focus of the 8th Annual TAMU Mare / Foal Workshop, set for February 24, 2004 at the Louis Pearce Pavilion in College Station, Texas.

The workshop offers mare owners training on topics including basic reproductive function, estrus detection and teasing, signs of foaling, health care, foal handling and neonatal care. Additional topics include body condition scoring, weight estimation, broodmare nutrition, forage selection and hay quality, and feeding young horses for sound growth and development.

“Each year we strive to offer the most comprehensive training for mare and foal owners,” said Dr. Pete Gibbs, Extension horse specialist. “With well over 200,000 breeding horse scattered across the state, this workshop addresses those needs of mare owners who breed and raise horses in Texas’ multi-billion dollar a year industry.”
