Is your farm violating state regulations? How can you safely and effectively dispose of manure? Is beet pulp a good feed choice for your horse? Penn State Cooperative Extension is offering a series of Equine Environmental Stewardship short courses and workshops to address these questions as well as other management concerns of horse owners.

The curriculum consists of pasture, weed, manure, and nutrient management; composting; nutrients in the horse's diet; and legislation rules and regulations. Attendees will learn how to take a soil sample and how to apply the test results to produce greener pastures. The hands-on approach will include use of the Equine Pasture Evaluation Disc, which will assist attendees in identifying forages and weeds so that they can improve pasture management.

Short courses scheduled dates and locations:

  • May 4 and 18, Chester County

  • May 17 and 24, Clinton County

  • Sept. 18 and 25, Butler County

  • Oct. 9 and 23, Mifflin County
