College of Agriculture, Food and Environment Equine Forum

The College of Agriculture, Food and Environment Equine Forum is a group of approximately 30-50 faculty, staff and students who meet monthly each fourth Friday about 10 times a year. Attendees are made up of those who work or are interested in equine topics from within the college, UK and even outside equine industry stakeholders. There are more than 150 people on the email distribution list, which is utilized to an­nounce upcoming meetings, as well as news releases, event announcements and updated newsletters from UK Ag Equine Programs.

The Forum was launched in 2006 with a kickoff meeting June 23. The structure of each meeting con­sists of introductions as well as updates from events and projects. The meeting then focuses on a featured presentation. Some presentations cover topics internal to the college and others are external organizations or causes.
