New JWCC Online Class Focuses on Equine Science

John Wood Community College will offer a new agriculture course in the upcoming spring semester. “Introduction to Equine Science” will be offered as a personal interest course for community members or as an elective course for agriculture students.

The course will focus on the principles of equine care and management, including breed identification, training, evaluation, selection, feeding, reproduction and physiology of equine animals. Particular attention will be paid to the feeding and training of horses and the role of the equine industry.

The course will run from January 14 to May 16, 2019, and is offered as a two-credit course for those seeking a certificate/degree. For more information or to register for the class, visit or contact Andrew Happekotte at 217.641.4346 or email
