This tour features a demonstration using horses with hands-on activities in equine pastures.

Producers will leave with an understanding of pasture management for horses, "do's" and "don'ts" of sacrifice areas, and tools needed to help improve equine operations. We'll walk through the fields and talk about grass and weed identification, innovative pasture methods, and dry lot design for horses on limited acreage at the demonstration site.
