Did you know that each horse makes about 50lbs of manure, EVERY DAY? Excess nutrients, found in the manure and urine, can get into the ground and surface waters, potentially making it undrinkable. Both nationally and internationally, water quality is becoming a very serious issue.
The good news is that properly managing the manure and pastures is neither difficult, nor impossibly expensive. On December 9, 2014, ELCR and My Horse University held a free webinar about best management practices and water protection.
The webinar was lead by ELCR Advisory Council member, Jamie Cohen, of University of Florida Agriculture Extension.
