"Choosing Supplements Wisely" with Dr. Carey Williams of Rutgers University
Dr. Carey Williams is a multi-award winning equine extension agent from Rutgers University. Her OCEN presentation in 2020 was so well received, that I've asked her back! This broad-sweeping lecture on equine supplements is a MUST HEAR for anyone feeding more than hay!

About the Event
I am very excited to announce the next guest lecturer in OCEN's 2021 spring series, Dr. Carey Williams- Professor in the Department of Animal Sciences at Rutgers University. She will discuss the various plus and minuses of supplement categories that you see on the market (i.e. joint, behavioral, coat, hoof, metabolic, hormonal, gut, ect) giving you loads of confidence in your choices. Carey A. Williams, Ph.D. joined Rutgers University in July 2003 as its Equine Extension Specialist, and Associate Director of Outreach for the Equine Science Center taking an active role in teaching, conducting research and working with the equine and academic communities to ensure the viability of the horse industry in New Jersey. Wisconsin native, Dr. Williams earned her doctorate degree with an emphasis on equine nutrition and exercise physiology in June 2003 from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. She holds a master’s degree in equine nutrition, also from Virginia Tech, and a bachelor’s degree from Colorado State University. At Rutgers, Dr. Williams maintains a herd of Standardbred mares for nutrition, pasture and exercise physiology research. The focus of her research is two-fold: antioxidant supplementation and decreasing the stress of exercise and competition in performance horses and, more recently, pasture management and metabolism of the grazing horse. As a hobby she trains and competes with her off the track Thoroughbred mare at various local and regional dressage shows. Most recently Dr. Williams was promoted to full professor in the Department of Animal Sciences at Rutgers University.
