Standlee is pleased to announce the First Annual Feed the Need: Standlee Equine Veterinary Nutrition Seminar. Available on-demand virtually, attendees will be able to participate in the seminar from December 5, 2022 to January 31, 2023.
Feed the Need will provide veterinarians, vet technicians, and vet students with additional knowledge and resources to utilize nutrition as a part of an equine diagnostic and management plan. We will offer recorded presentations focused on prevention, management, and treatment through nutrition for the companion equine all the way to the elite athlete. Frequently asked questions and a chat forum will complement the recordings. There will also be downloadable resources to support you, your clinic, and your clients.

The presenting speaker at Standlee’s first annual Equine Veterinary Nutrition Seminar will be Dr. Stephen Duren, PhD, MS, PAS. Dr. Duren completed his Bachelor of Science in animal sciences at the University of Idaho. He earned a Master of Science and a Doctor of Philosophy in equine nutrition and exercise physiology from the University of Kentucky. His research focused on feeding fat to racehorses. It also looked at changes in blood flow distribution in fed and fasted horses during exercise. Duren has now formed Performance Horse Nutrition, LLC, where he consults with feed manufacturers and horse owners throughout the world. Duren has owned horses his entire life and truly understands the connection between diet and performance. He has owned competitive horses and understands the investment of time and training. Therefore, he realizes that diet should be a factor that helps the horse, not limits the horse.
