“This will be a great opportunity to learn and ask questions about how the immune system works as it pertains to horses,” said Mary Keena, NDSU Extension livestock environmental management specialist and who is based at NDSU’s Carrington Research Extension Center.

“Understanding immune response, as well as how to mitigate disease concerns through a biosecurity protocol, can save you a lot of money and time, as well as help you maintain the health of your animal.”
