Economics of Equine Feeding: Free Webcast Offers Research-based Strategies for Reducing Hay Waste


While you can’t put a value on proper nutrition for your horse, economics are often a formative factor in a feeding management plan. Reducing hay waste is one of the simplest solutions to cutting costs without compromising quality. Join My Horse University and eXtension HorseQuest for a free, live webcast on Sept. 27 at 7 p.m. EDT to hear new research-based strategies for reducing waste from an equine expert.

Dr. Krishona Martinson, University of Minnesota equine Extension specialist, will present Reducing Hay Waste. Dr. Martinson will demonstrate how reducing hay waste starts with buying quality hay and proper storage. She will also offer options for reducing waste though feeding management and careful selection of a feeder. Participants also will be updated on the latest research on hay waste and the economics of nine unique round bale feeders. Participants can register for the webcast online. For those who are unable to attend the live presentation, webcasts are also recorded and available for viewing online at no cost. Other resources offered by My Horse University and eXtension HorseQuest include a free monthly e-newsletter and social networks on Facebook and Twitter.
