Selecting and making good-quality horse hay will be the focus of the upcoming Purdue University Extension Hay Day, July 27 at Historic Prophetstown in West Lafayette, IN.
Along with a discussion of horse nutritional requirements based on body condition scores, activity and life cycle, there will also be presentations on how horses utilize different forage cuttings and plant species and on health complications that can arise when horses are fed lower-quality forages.
A demonstration on using horse-drawn equipment for hay cutting, raking and baling and a lunch will also be part of the day’s activities.
The workshop will cost $40 and include an informational package, handouts and lunch. Download a registration form.
