ITBA Educational Programme 2021

Preparations are underway for ITBA Educational Programme 2021. To continue our compliance of the Government’s COVID-19 Guidelines, we are looking to deliver much of this year’s programme online.

Internet based meetings, webinars, even online bloodstock sales are currently a fact of everyday life. With this in mind, ITBA is endeavouring to present an all-encompassing educational programme. Similar to last year, all workshops and webinars will be delivered FREE for breeders. The programme will include a wide selection of topics to assist breeders in running their operation and their bloodstock business; inside and out, from administration to online activities, stud farm management, equine welfare, health and safety to name a few.

We will seek to secure CVE credits from the Veterinary Council of Ireland as well as QQI accreditation were possible. We will secure funding from the Department of Agriculture, under its 2021 Equine Technical Support Scheme. Below is an overview time table of ITBA Educational Programme 2021, the details of which will be announced in the coming weeks.

  • Spring Ask The Experts Series (March / May)
  • Summer Educational Series 2020 (June / August)
  • Foal Sales Preparation Workshop (September)
  • Autumn/ Winter Veterinary Lectures (October / November)
  • Breeding Season Preparation Workshop (December)

To allow us prepare and deliver a tailored ITBA Educational Programme 2021, we would appreciate your input in terms of topics and speakers, which are relevant to breeders. Please forward your suggestions to by Thursday, 18th February 2021.
