Two of the experienced stud vets from RVC Equine, Samantha Castle and Nicole Larkin, will discuss all stages of the breeding process. Starting with planning the pregnancy, through to how to achieve a successful conception both with natural covering and artificial insemination, as well as advice on looking after your pregnant mare. The lecture will also cover all you need to know about the foaling process and care of your mare and foal until weaning.
