Pasture Management Advice AvailableBy Kentucky Equine Research Staff · April 18, 2012
The University of Minnesota is offering a pasture management program aimed at optimizing the use of Minnesota horse pastures.
After registering, participants will receive an initial and a follow‐up visit from an equine specialist; an area soil map, soil analysis, and fertility recommendations; a forage quality analysis; a pasture survey to identify forage species, find poisonous plants, and make weed control recommendations; an overall facilities assessment; manure management recommendations; and a customized pasture and grazing management plan.
Cost is $650 and the program is limited to 40 horse farms in central and eastern Minnesota and western Wisconsin. To register for the program, go to http://www.regonline.com/EquinePastureManage. For additional information, contact Jennifer Earing at jeearing@umn or 612-624-7455.
