FREE WEBCAST! 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. This webinar will explain how to properly utilize Best Management Practices, BMPs, allowing a farm to flourish, stay productive and protect our water, a most precious resource. BMPs are practical, cost-effective and science based techniques that may be already getting used on your farm or boarding facility, so watch this webinar to find out how to keep the horse, the farm and the water stay its best.
