November 10, 2009, Clinton, Ont. –  A two day Equine Reproduction course was held at the Regional Equine & Agricultural Centre of Huron (REACH) on Saturday, November 7 and Sunday, November 8, 2009 in Clinton, Ont.
 
“I take lots of equine educational courses”, said course participant Rosemary Mesley of Peterborough, “but this is the best course I have taken so far!”
 
The participants covered everything from nutrition of the mare and stallion in preparation for breeding, right through to hands-on instruction on inseminating mares at the end of the second day. Instructors included Doug Nash from ITSI, Jackie van DerBrink and Alf Budweth from Masterfeeds and Dr. Katie Crossan from Kirkton Veterinary Clinic.
 
“Our new facilities were put to the test.” says Melanie Prosser, Director of Program Services at REACH. “The brand new lab, equipped by ITSI Equine Provisions Inc. and the heated teaching barn proved to be very well designed for the use.”
 
The next Equine Reproduction course is scheduled for February 20 & 21, 2010.
 
The facilities at REACH include indoor arenas, a heated teaching barn, high-tech classrooms, dorm rooms and a community kitchen. For further information about the course or REACH, please visit www.ReachHuron.ca.
 
The Regional Equine & Agricultural Centre of Huron (REACH) is a non-profit Municipal Corporation functioning as a "motel for education", offering innovative programming, as well as recreational activities, to support the equine, agricultural and other industries.
