    During SICAB, ANCCE organizes technical workshops about the PRE Breeding Program and the Stud Book


    The 2016 PRE Breeding Stock Catalog will be presented together with the procedures and breed structure by countries according to the PRE Stud Book

    Once again, ANCCE is organizing two technical workshops within the scope of SICAB, the International Purebred Spanish Horse Trade Fair. These workshops will be held on the 17th and 18th of November and have been designed for breeders, enthusiasts and those generally interested in the equine sector.

    The first day—Thursday, the 17th of November—the course is titled “Breeding Program: PRE Breeding Stock.” During this first section, the 2016 PRE Breeding Stock Catalog will be presented, together with pointers about how to use and interpret it. Several speeches will be given about the situation of the PRE Breeding Program regarding the genes involved in functionality and their capacity for sports, the repercussions of having a full understanding of the equine genome and sequencing techniques when diagnosing genetic diseases in equine species.

    The second day—Friday, the 18th of November—the topic is the “PRE Stud Book: Procedures and Structure of the Breed per Country.” Two speeches will be given: “Gene Flow and Genetic Variability among countries breeding PRE Horses” and “PRE Stud Book Procedures.”
    These workshops will be moderated by Dr. Dra. Mercedes Valera, Professor at the University of Sevilla, specialist in Equine Genetic Improvement with the MERAGEM Research Group. A number of other equine specialists will also participate in the session.
