This subject contains a 3 day Compulsory Residential School.
The Residential School for this subject will allow students who are studying online to both directly experience and implement aspects of equine reproduction. This will allow students to put the theory gained online into practice under industry conditions. The three day residential school will comprise a mixture of workshops, yard/stable/paddock and laboratory based activities that will complement the theoretical materials delivered on line throughout this subject. Such practical experiences will include reproductive anatomy of the stallion and the mare, dissection of pregnant reproductive tracts, semen evaluation, identification of ova and scanning mares using ultrasound.
