Sound knowledge and hands-on experience are two keys to success in the equine breeding industry. The Colorado State University Equine Reproduction Laboratory faculty is always applying their research and updating ERL short courses to include the very latest in successful breeding techniques. Horse owner continuing education short courses at the CSU Equine Reproduction Laboratory offer an in-depth education on reproductive management of stallions, mares and foals, and hands-on experience in semen collection, artificial insemination and newborn foal care. CSU ERL courses offer horse owners unique opportunities to collect and evaluate semen, prepare insemination doses, and inseminate mares under the guidance of world-class faculty. Invaluable diagnostic and intervention skills in obstetrics are gained for any future event of a difficult foaling.
*Registration will open in July 2019 for all ERL short courses.
