Non-credit “horse course” covers equine care and management
Beginning January 9, 2017, and continuing for 11 Mondays, the non-credit Horse Production and Management course will be offered by the Department of Animal Science at the University of Manitoba.
The bond between horse and mankind is centuries old. Discover how to enhance this bond by gaining well-rounded knowledge of the equine species. Learn techniques of horse mastership that will allow you to provide quality care for your equine partner.
This series of lectures deals with the principles of horse production and management, including anatomy and physiology, genetics, selection and breeding, reproductive management, nutrition, stable and pasture management, health and welfare, and equine behaviour. Guest speakers and a farm tour are included.
The class is capped at 20 students.
