Description/Notes: 

Stocking up on hay during the summer months saves horse owners money while having hay available when forage becomes scarce.  Selecting high quality hay provides high quality nutrition to the animals being fed.  Learn techniques to evaluate hay to determine good quality hay from poor quality hay. 

Join the University of Maryland Extension for an evening to discuss various forage options as well as selecting local hay varieties.  There will be a short tour of the forage/pasture research plot.  Guest Speaker Jessica Morton, equine specialist with Southern States, will be discussing alternative forage options (such as bagged forage) versus utalizing fresh cut forage.  Light refreshments will be provided.
