The Pennsylvania State University Extension Equine Team is offering an equine grazing school field day, which will be held Sept. 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the Ryerss Farm for Aged horses in the Coventry, Pa., area.

Participants will learn about forage biology and management practices and will practice evaluating pastures and identifying grasses. Weed identification, basic biology, and management will also be covered. Representatives from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) will talk about construction, sizing and regulation of sacrifice areas, how to develop a stream crossing and possible cost-share opportunities for environmental practices. And following lunch, there will be a talk about the Ryerss program including farm history, operations, and their pasture programs.

From 1:30-2:30 PM, participants will have a choice of one of two workshops on "Hay Selection" or "Soil Fertility and Health".

The cost is $20 per person, which includes lunch, all workshops, and printed materials. The event will be held rain or shine with sessions in the barn and walking through the pastures so dress accordingly. Registration starts at 8:30 a.m
