Horse Owners can learn about Pasture Management, Form to Function at Ag Expo

Horse Press Release

EAST LANSING, Michigan -- Horse owners who attend the Ag Expo, July 20-22 at Michigan State University (MSU), can view demonstrations designed to help them better understand how a horse’s body structure affects its performance and how to establish and maintain pastures.

John Shelle, MSU professor of animal science, will offer a presentation at 10 a.m. each day focusing on how a horse’s skeletal structure contributes to its abilities to perform and its potential for long-term soundness.

At 1 p.m., Matt Shane, Lenawee County MSU Extension director, will discuss establishing and maintaining horse pastures. His talk will include forage species, fertilizers, planting schedules, space requirements and mowing.

Both presentations will take place on Third Street, on the east side of the main Ag Expo site.

Ag Expo visitors can also meet other MSU educators -- from agronomists and agricultural engineers to foresters, veterinarians and animal scientists. They will be on hand to discuss their work and share information on various aspects of farming, new Michigan Agricultural Experiment Station and MSU research information, and MSU Extension programs.

Ag Expo will feature commercial farm equipment from throughout the Midwest and several Canadian provinces on the 35-acre main exhibition site.

The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 20, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. July 21 and 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. July 22. All Ag Expo events and parking at Farm Lane and Mt. Hope Road are free.
