Horses in pasture

LEXINGTON, Ky., (Dec. 22, 2017) University of Kentucky Ag Equine Programs will host a Pastures Please!! pasture maintenance workshop from 6 to 8 p.m. EST, Jan. 22, at the Scott County Extension office, located at 1130 Cincinnati Road in Georgetown. The event is free, and snacks will be provided prior to the event by McCauley’s Feeds.

Horse owners, farm owners and farm managers will have the opportunity to listen to several informative talks from forage extension specialists about seeding, weeding and general pasture management.

“The Pastures Please!! program has impacted a multitude of people involved in the equine industry by teaching pasture management methods and practices that extend the grazing season and reduce the need for purchased forage,” said Michelle Simon, Scott County agriculture and natural resources extension agent. “The 2018 program will focus heavily on reestablishment and weed control, both of which provide environments for healthier, better-producing horses. Every horse owner is encouraged to attend.”

“Attending this meeting will give farm managers the skills required to improve the quality and productivity of pastures,” said Ray Smith, UK forage extension specialist.
