AUBURN, Ala. -- Veterinarians from Auburn University and a national animal pharmaceutical company will be among guest speakers who will address topics from horse health to pasture management at an educational symposium March 23 at the Ham Wilson Livestock Arena in Auburn.

Among the topics to be addressed are preventative health care, first aid techniques for horses, controlling weeds and maintaining grass in pastures, fire ant control, body condition scoring, horse nutrition and maintaining safe facilities.
