UC Davis animal science students will put nine horses and two mules up for public auction on Saturday at the 2014 Horse Production Sale.
The event will be held at the Cole Facility arena, adjacent to the horse barn and opposite Meyer Hall on La Rue Road. The 6 p.m. auction will be preceded by a 3:30 p.m. viewing of the sale horses and a 4:30 p.m. barbecue.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the animal science department’s equine production program.
The sale ends six-month internships for the students, during which students learn to handle and train weanlings and yearlings, breed mares for future sales and care for mares and foals before and after birth.
