Pasture management, weed control and rotational grazing are just three of many topics identified by Horse SA as being of concern to horse owners on small properties.
A Free Educational Farm Walk will be conducted at Brukunga, near Nairne, on Saturday 22nd March. It will provide a practical approach for horse property owners to find out more about how to manage their land in a more sustainable manner.
“Overgrazing, leading to dust & mud with associated horse health problems can be managed effectively with some forward planning” said Julie Fiedler, Executive Officer for Horse SA
Participants can bring along their own water & soil samples for a test, pasture weeds for identification and hay for evaluation at no extra cost.
If you live in the South Australian Murray Darling Basin Natural Resources Management Region, attendance at the field days qualifies you for a free on-farm consult which includes a property management plan.
The workshop is funded through the SA Murray-Darling Basin NRM Board and the Australian Government.
