MU Extension Equine Forage Program

  • Face to Face


This educational two-evening program from University of Missouri Extension will cover pasture evaluation, forage identification, toxic plants, tall fescue toxicosis and other health-related issues, forage physiology and growth, soil resources, horse grazing behavior, how grazing impacts forages, how to decide if a pasture needs renovated, and horse hay (nutrient needs, quality, and sampling). A portion of each evening will be spent outside (weather permitting) in a pasture with the remainder of the session in the meeting room.

A light supper will be provided; please let us know if you have special dietary needs.
