posted by Horse Owner Today    |   October 17, 2012 08:53



 
 
Healthy horses are the key to a sustainable equine industry. Biosecurity plays a vital role in both individual horse and herd health. To help assess current biosecurity practices and training needs at breeding farms, breeding farm owners are invited to participate in a research study being coordinated by Dr. Ulrika Gronlund Andersson and Dr. Scott Weese from the University of Guelph.  The confidential survey will take between 45 - 60 minutes to complete.
 
If you have any questions about this study, please contact Dr. Scott Weese of the Department of Pathobiology, University of Guelph at 519-824-4120 ext 54064 or jsweese@uoguelph.ca.
