University of Kentucky (UK) Ag Equine Programs will host an Equine Farm and Facilities Expo from 3:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Thursday, June 8, at New Vocations at Mereworth Farm, 719 Dolan Lane in Lexington. The event is free and a meal will be provided.

Horse owners and farm managers will have the opportunity to visit exhibitor booths and see a range of equipment and supplies for horse farms of all sizes. Specialists from the UK College of Agriculture, Food and Environment will provide instruction about practical aspects of management for equine operations including barn design, farm site planning, nutrient intake regulation, and horse pasture management. Specialists will also staff informational booths and farm tours will be available.

“The expo provides horse farm owners and managers a hands-on event that shows practical solutions for facilities and pasture management,” said Ray Smith, PhD, forage extension specialist in the UK Department of Plant and Soil Sciences. “We appreciate New Vocations hosting this event and opening the farm’s gates to the public.”

Founded in 1992, New Vocations has grown into the largest racehorse adoption program in the country. Its mission to rehabilitate, retrain, and rehome retired racehorses has led to the placement of over 6,000 individuals, with over 450 retirees entering the program each year
