Healthy land, healthy horses workshop

A FREE horse property management workshop, hosted by Healthy Land and Water, Mooloolah River Landcare and Lake Baroon Catchment Care Group, will be held at the Landsborough School of Arts Hall on Saturday, November 27 from 9am-3pm.

Come along to learn about the landscape attributes of your property, how best to care for your natural assets – soils, vegetation and water – and how to manage it to support healthy horses.

Topics will include recognising and understanding your land types; impacts and limitations on productive capacity; forage budgeting based on how much your horse eats and how many can you run sustainably; maintaining healthy pastures for horses; and managing weeds, nutrients and protecting sensitive areas.

The morning session will be presented by Bruce Lord, regional Agriculture Landcare Facilitator with guest speaker Stuart Bryce from Hinterland Equine Veterinary Services talking about nutrition and disease.

The afternoon involves a field visit to a local horse property, travelling in your own vehicle.

Morning tea and lunch is provided, and pre-registration is essential.
