Healthy Land for Healthy Horses: A Short Course on Pasture and Manure Management
A new six-week course this spring will cover the basics of conservation on horse farms.
Healthy Land for Healthy Horses: A Short Course on Pasture and Manure Management will be held Monday evenings starting April 24 at the Middleburg Agricultural Research and Extension Center.
Horse farms of any size, depending on how they are managed, can affect soil, water and the animal. The installation of a few best management practices can provide long-term benefits for horse farms, local waterways and even horses themselves.
The course will cover conservation specifically for horse farms (see topics below). Hands-on activities and a horse farm bus tour will complement classroom lectures by MARE Center researchers and soil and water conservation district staff.
Participants who attend three of the six sessions and submit a conservation plan at the final session will receive a certificate.
For more information: 540-687-3521 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
