"With this CD, horse owners will make the right decisions about seeding and maintaining and rotating their pastures for maximum benefit to their animals." Kevin Kline, equine specialist

Pastures for Horses provides comprehensive information on rotational grazing as a means of maintaining healthy horses in a cost-effective, environmentally friendly operation.

If you are a small-farm operator with 50 acres or less to devote to pasture, this resource will be of particular interest to you. The methods described on the CD can be put to work in smaller areas and still be sustainable and profitable.

You'll get reliable information on every aspect of pasture management. You'll learn how to:

  • save money and time by dramatically increasing forage amounts and improving forage quality
  • decrease negative environmental impact by reducing erosion and runoff even in small areas
  • raise healthier horses in a natural setting that encourages exercise and lowers the risk of health-related problems
  • use Excel worksheets to calculate pasture acreage, convert metric measurements to English, and more.
