Equine Forage Quality Meetings Slated for Early November

The Central New York Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team of Cornell Cooperative Extension will be hosting three Equine Forage Quality meetings in early November.

The meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. each evening. Horse owners and hay growers attending will learn more about the forage quality needs of their horses or those of their customers, how to assess hay quality through forage testing and how to achieve the desired quality in the field.

Presenters will be Carol Buckhout, Assistant Professor of Equine Business Management at Cazenovia College and Kevin Ganoe, Regional Field Crop Specialist for Cornell Cooperative Extension’s Central NY Dairy, Livestock and Field Crops Team.
