FREE Equine Nutrition Course Starting Soon!

Back in July I wrote about how The University of Edinburgh was offering a free online equine nutrition course run through It has just been announced that the starting date for this course is going to be the 28th of January. 

The 5 week long course is being presented by Jo-Anne Murray, a senior lecturer in Animal Nutrition and Husbandry at the Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies at the University. 

So far more then 10,000 people have already signed up to take part in the course and because it is an online course there is no limit on the number of attendees ... so you can still sign up and take part if you haven't done so already! 

The course syllabus is as follows:
Week 1: Anatomy and physiology of the equine gastrointestinal tract
Week 2: Nutrient digestion in the equine gastrointestinal tract
Week 3: Equine nutrient sources and feeding management
Week 4: Equine dietary management
Week 5: Equine clinical nutrition

The course will consist of weekly one-hour lectures broken down into videos of 10 - 15 minutes in length. Supporting notes will be provided and there will be quiz questions throughout the course along with additional optional assignments.
