University of Kentucky Ag Equine Programs will host the 9th annual UK Equine Showcase Jan. 24-25, 2019, at the Fayette County Extension Office, 1140 Harry Sykes Way, in Lexington.

The event will highlight the university’s equine programs and relevant industry findings with an emphasis on the foal, from birth to weaning. The event will span two days: Friday, Jan. 24 from 12:30 to 5 p.m., followed by a networking happy hour, and Saturday, Jan. 25, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. with lunch provided.

Topics for the showcase include epidemiology and diagnostics, infectious disease, immunology and parasitology, nutrition, musculoskeletal issues, genetics, and economics.

Knight Chair within the Maxwell H. Gluck Equine Research Center. “Attendees will hopefully gain new information they can apply to their programs, but importantly also a greater appreciation for some of the critical questions being addressed at UK, why these issues are important, and where the cutting edge of research is on a number of very interesting topics
