Visit from Minnesota Board of Regents

On October 25, the St. Paul campus hosted the University of Minnesota Board of Regents.  Equine Extension Specialist Dr. Krishona Martinson gave them a tour of the Leatherdale Equine Center and discussed collaborations between the Animal Science Department and the College of Veterinary Medicine.  Dr. Martinson also highlighted the connection between research, Extension and teaching by discussing the processing of developing, marking and using the Healthy Horse App in teaching and Extension programs.   Regents Anderson and Hsu showed great horsemanship as they learned how to estimate horse bodyweight using the Healthy Horse App with help from our trusty steed Sierra.
