THE RUTGERS EQUINE SCIENCE CENTER PRESENTS: AN EVENING OF SCIENCE AND CELEBRATION

-- Rutgers Equine

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ -- November 1, 2016 -- The Rutgers Equine Science Center will host its 2016 "Evening of Science & Celebration" on Thursday, November 17 from 6:00 - 10:00 pm at the Cook Campus Center in New Brunswick, NJ. The event is being sponsored by Mid-Atlantic Equine Medical Center.

The Evening of Science and Celebration is an opportunity to unite equine professionals, horse owners, farm owners and barn managers, educators and students, 4-H members, and all equine enthusiasts for the purpose of learning about current projects and ongoing research initiatives being conducted at the Equine Science Center. The Center aims to address horse industry issues and challenges through sound-science and research.

This year, Kristine Urschel, Ph.D. will deliver the keynote presentation titled, "Protein Needs for Equine Athletes". Dr. Urschel is an Associate Professor of Equine Science in the Animal & Food Science Department at the University of Kentucky. Her research focuses on studying protein and amino acid requirements and metabolism in horses of all ages and physiological states, especially during and after exercise.

Jeanne Vuyosevich, a thoroughbred trainer from Sunset Meadow Farm in Farmingdale, NJ will receive the 2017 "Spirit of the Horse Award" for her contributions to the welfare of horses. Center director, Karyn Malinowski stated, "Jeanne's long-time care and rehabilitation of thoroughbred horses make her a worthy candidate for the award, which is given to people whose lives have been impacted by horses and who continue to give back to horses and the equine industry."

The Center will present its annual Gold Medal Horse Farm award to the Nienart family from Hidden Hills Farm in Hillsborough, NJ. The award, part of the New Jersey Equine Environmental Stewardship Program, gives recognition to outstanding equine farms for their dedication to environmental sustainability and management. It also underscores the efforts of the New Jersey equine industry to maintain the beauty of the Garden State. The program is a collaborative initiative by the New Jersey Agricultural Experiment Station at Rutgers University, the Rutgers Equine Science Center, and the New Jersey Department of Agriculture.

Additional presentations scheduled will include:
•Highlights of Center Activity
•Horse Diet Fads
•Equine Microbiome

Prior to the beginning of the event, the Equine Science Center will present a demonstration of the high-speed equine exercise physiology treadmill at 5:00 pm at the "Red Barn" on College Farm Road.

An "Evening of Science & Celebration" will begin promptly with dinner at 6:00 pm. After dinner, Madison Whiting, a New Jersey 4-H Horse Project member will present her award winning presentation, "What's for Dinner?" about the odd things that horses eat.
