Join us on April 24 at the Virginia Horse Center in Lexington for a free Client Education Dinner & Seminar on Equine Imaging and Hay Analysis. Doors open at 5:30 pm in the Coliseum Mezzanine, dinner begins at 6:00 pm, and speakers will present at 6:45 pm. Sponsored by Blue Ridge Equine Clinic, Augusta Cooperative Farm Bureau and the Virginia Horse Center, this meeting will be your chance to hear experts in the fields of cutting edge equine health care and nutrition.
Accurate, thorough diagnosis is the one of the keys to effective, efficient treatment of equine ailments. Blue Ridge Equine Clinic’s Dr. Tabby Moore will walk you through the cutting edge equine imaging technologies available, and discuss the abilities, best uses, advantages and limitations of each. She will compare uses of equine ultrasound, radiology, nuclear scintigrahy (bone scan) and MRI, and answer your questions about them.
Are you confident about your hay’s nutritional value? Hay is the foundation of a good equine nutrition program, provides 50-90% of the horse’s total nutrients, but its protein and fiber values can vary widely by location, even by field and by cutting. Don’t guess about your hay’s quality. Krishona Martinson, PhD and Equine Extension Specialist from the University of Minnesota will discuss the importance of testing your hay, and even analyze a sample of your hay at the meeting (please ask how to collect the best sample of your hay when you call to register).
Don’t miss this free opportunity to learn about equine health and nutrition from topic experts. Call today to register: (540)460-5702 and please share the meeting flyer with your friends. We hope to see you there!
