KNOXVILLE — The University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine (UTCVM) will host “Management Strategies in Equine Health Care” March 17.
Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m. and the conference will run to 4:30 p.m. in Hollingsworth Auditorium on the UT agricultural campus in Knoxville.
Since a good horse owner is an educated horse owner, the day is dedicated to the health and management of the horse. Preventive healthcare in horses helps keep an equine companion healthy and protects the owner’s investment.
The conference is designed for those who have owned horses for years or those who are new to the horse world.
Speakers for the conference include board-certified faculty of the UT Department of Large Animal Clinical Sciences and UT Extension. Topics include down horses, dental care, stem cell therapy, nutrition, Cavalor products, immunology, equine welfare and neonatal care.
The fee for the conference is $30 for the first family member and $15 for each additional family member. This fee covers lunch, refreshments and materials. Visit to download a brochure and registration form.
Advance registration by March 10 is requested to ensure adequate food and supplies. To register online or for more information, visit; email; or call (865) 974-7264.
