07/31/2017 3:34 PM | Anonymous

Lexington, KY (July 31, 2017) The Kentucky Horse Council has announced the topic for the August Kentucky Equine Networking Association (KENA) dinner: How to Respond to Equine Emergencies.  The dinner, presented by Neogen, will be held on August 15, 2017, at Fasig-Tipton in Lexington, Ky. KENA is a dinner and educational series open to equine professionals, horse owners, and recreational riders and will feature a networking reception from 5:30-6:00 PM, followed by dinner with the main speakers from 6-8 PM.

The group, focused on the Kentucky thoroughbred, sport, and pleasure horse community, is charged with the mission of providing an educational and social venue for equine professionals and horse enthusiasts from all disciplines. KENA, which is organized by the Kentucky Horse Council and supported by the University of Kentucky Ag Equine Program, provides the opportunity for attendees to share ideas, business strategies and knowledge, and to obtain up-to-date information on horse and farm management.

A representative from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute will discuss the latest updates on large animal emergency rescue and what horse and barn owners can do when they find a horse in a precarious situation as well as who to call for assistance.  A first responder will also discuss what to do in case of a barn fire and what steps you can take to prevent a fire from breaking out.

“Horses have an innate ability to get themselves into bad situations and that, along with fire, is every horse owner’s nightmare,” says Kentucky Horse Council Executive Director Katy Ross.  “We are looking forward to an informative panel discussion on what to do when you find yourself in one of those situations and helping horse owners in Kentucky educate themselves on how to handle these emergencies.”     

The August 15 dinner is presented by Neogen Corporation.  Neogen’s Animal Safety Division manufactures and markets a complete line of diagnostics, veterinary instruments, veterinary pharmaceuticals, therapeutic supplements, disinfectants, and rodenticides.
