Resources page helps horse owners during shortage

May 2, 2013 | 0 comments

As a result of the 2012 drought, some horse owners are having difficulties finding feed sources for their horses. Michigan State University Extension has created an online resource to aid horse owners with equine feeding and welfare issues.

"The hay supply is short this year in part because of the devastating drought that we experienced this past summer," said Karen Waite, MSU equine Extension specialist. "This new online resource contains options for horse owners during this time of need."

The resource page on winter feed is available at http://msue.anr.msu.edu/. To get to it, run the mouse over the "Agriculture" category along the green navigation bar at the top and click on "Horses" from the drop-down menu. All the horse resources are listed under the "Resources" header along the right-hand column. The direct link is http://msue.anr.msu.edu/resources/horse_feed_resources.

The Equine Feed and Welfare Resources page features MSU Extension articles on alternative feed sources, hay prices and availability, hay and pasture, and equine welfare and body condition scoring.

For more information about hay resources, drought or winter feed sources for horses, visit the Michigan State University (MSU) Extension website at www.msue.msu.edu. The site features information from MSU Extension experts throughout the state.
