Learn basic techniques for good pasture management including: how grasses grow, creating a winter paddock, liming, spreading compost and rotational grazing. We will discuss what constitutes a “lush” pasture and how to manage horses and grazing so horses don’t become fat. We will also look at how to use a hay core sampler and do a nutritional analysis of your hay. Part of this event will include a pasture walk to look at ways to utilize and improve small acreage pastures for horses. Learn how to weave pasture, equine nutrition and horse health together, with Alayne Blickle.
