Whether you own sheep, cattle or horses, pasture management is an important part of raising farm animals. To get the most out of your pastures, they need to be maintained properly. The Geauga Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD), Lake Erie College, the Geauga County Ohio State University Extension, the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service and the Geauga County Farm Bureau invite you to a unique opportunity to learn more about pasture and hay management with Bob Hendershot, Ohio Department of Agriculture Grazing Specialist, and Les Ober, OSU Extension Geauga County Program Coordinator.
The Equine Pasture Management program begins at 6 p.m. at Lake Erie College’s George M. Humphrey Equestrian Learning Center (8031 Morley Road, Mentor, 44060). For directions, visit https://www.lec.edu/eq-directions. This program will include a short tour of Lake Erie College’s Equestrian Center and a pasture walk focusing on establishing and maintaining quality pasture for your horses. Whether lots of acreage or smaller paddocks, gain valuable insight on pasture rotation and grazing management.
The program is free of charge but registration is required by June 4. For more information, to register or to request any special accommodations, please contact Geauga SWCD at 440-834-1122 or [email protected].
