Since pasture and hay are the wealth of a horse’s diet, it’s safe to say that forage management is critical to ensure a horse’s nutritional requirements are being met. Please join us for a three-part virtual horse series, via Zoom, beginning on December 10th. All three presentations will be held from 12 pm-1 pm. This series will discuss forage management topics relevant to horse owners but anyone interested is welcomed to attend! Please see the schedule and registration links below.
December 10th: Hay selection, testing hay, and estimating hay needs.
January 14th: Practicing proper soil fertilization to make your pastures more vigorous and productive.
February 11th: Management practices and tips for common pasture weeds.
If you are interested in attending just one or all three of the of the presentations, please visit: https://go.ncsu.edu/foragesforhorseowners to register! If you have any questions related to the series please contact Anthony Growe, Richmond county Livestock agent, at (910) 997-8255.
