Alltech Lectures Series at Transylvania: Expert on equine health to speak at Transylvania March 24; free and open to the public

LEXINGTON, Ky.—On Wednesday, March 24, Kyle Newman, director of Venture Laboratories, Inc., will present “Feeding the Equine Athlete for Success,” in Transylvania University’s Carrick Theater at 7 p.m. The lecture is part of the Alltech Lecture Series at Transylvania and is free and open to the public.

Venture Laboratories is one of two external resources conducting studies on Mare Reproductive Loss Syndrome, which caused the loss of thousands of foals in Kentucky and surrounding states in 2001. Newman was responsible for eliminating mycotoxins as a cause of MRLS.

Newman received his Ph.D. from the University of Kentucky, specializing in interactions between immunity, nutrition and the gastrointestinal ecosystem. Studies conducted by Newman helped to define how yeast culture may benefit equine digestion. He is the primary author on a book chapter describing the effects of mycotoxins on horses.

Newman will answer questions from the audience after speaking and a reception will follow. There will be a raffle for two Alltech FEI World Equestrian Games tickets.
