Amid Kentucky's winter season, equine enthusiasts and farm operators are already shifting their focus to the upcoming springtime pastures. The University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service (CES) effort is set to present "Pastures Please!!" March 5 in Georgetown. The event is dedicated to the latest insights in equine pasture management.  

This year, UK Martin-Gatton College of Agriculture, Food and Environment experts will cover a range of topics, including the strategic use of herbicides in effective weed control, rescuing pastures for short-term use and strategies for fertilizing pastures. 

“County agents have worked hard developing a program, addressing what could impact pastures in the upcoming grazing season," said Bob Coleman, Animal and Food Science associate professor. "While the conditions change from year-to-year, county agents are observing what their clients need regarding their pastures. It continues to be a strong educational resource for horse owners.” 

Pastures Please!! was initiated in 2007. It was developed by CES agents to deliver relevant and actionable information to horse owners.
