Students Awarded at Equine Science Society Symposium

Two Animal Science students brought home awards from the 2017 Equine Science Society Symposium.

At the Equine Science Society Symposium, May 30-June 2, in Minneapolis, Rhiannon Sehl, Animal Science student and professorial assistant working in Dr. Brian Nielsen’s lab, won the undergraduate student competition out of 19 undergraduates with her presentation “Stalling mature idle horses has only a minor impact on skeletal health”.

Also at the Equine Science Society Symposium, Chelsea Nowlin took 3rd place in the Exercise Science Graduate Student Competition with her presentation “Acute and prolonged effects of vibrating platform treatment on horses: a pilot study”. Chelsea performed the research while working as an undergraduate in Dr. Nielsen’s lab last year but had to compete in the graduate competition as she is now in vet school.
