Free webinar: Horse nutrition - choosing roughage for your horses

16 April 2020

Time: 7 pm
Cost: Free

Join Dr. Mariette van den Berg

Managing your pastures to provide enough forage for your horses would be ideal; however, in reality not many horse owners have the capacity to maintain horses on pasture as well as harvesting roughage to preserve for lesser times in the year.

Moreover, in parts of Australia, the conditions are not favourable for growing enough fresh grass or forages.

This means that you have to shop around for your roughage.

In this webinar we discuss:

  • the selection and use of various types of roughage and the importance of quality versus quantity
  • nutritional requirements of horses
  • production processes
  • choosing roughage - grass, legume and other types of fibre sources
  • fodder trees and shrubs
