2012 Equine Seminar November 10

Fall is here, and with the increasingly cooler weather upon us, it’s the time of year for horse enthusiasts to be thinking about how they plan to get their horses through to spring in good shape.

If you’re a new horse owner or want to make sure buying a horse is right for you, the 2012 Equine Seminar at DCC will provide you with valuable information and connect you with area resources before you take the plunge. 

DCC will be hosting the Equine Seminar November 10. Check-in begins at 8am with the first session beginning at 9am. There will be four sessions provided under the direction of the Dawson Co Vet Service, MSU Extension, J&A Arena and Big Sky Shires. Sessions will be held in the Ullman Center on the DCC campus.

Area and regional horse professionals will present on a variety of topics that include:

  • hay storage
  • selection and feeding in tough times
  •  keeping horses on a small acreage
  • equine first aid
  • wound management and care
  • equine stretching and performance
  • Montana brand law and how it affects horses
  • equine nutrition and body condition
  • mud and manure management.

The cost of the seminar is $50 with a discounted rate of $25 for 4-H and FFA Members. Included in the cost is Lunch- (Pulled Pork, Beans and Potato Salad), door prizes, snacks and all printed material.

The seminar is sponsored by Dawson Community College, DCC Ag Club, DCC Agribusiness Program, Dawson County Vet Service, Big Sky Shires and Equine Services, and the Montana State University Extension Services.
