The North American Manure Expo is returning to Pennsylvania and promises to provide “Manure than you can Handle.”
Workshops are planned to educate farm owners on taking a whole-farm approach to control can cut down on deworming, save money on products that are no longer effective on your farm, help you learn which horses have natural resistance and which ones are “shedders”, and help reduce parasite resistance.
The PA Horse World Expo will bring the nation’s leading equestrian clinicians and entertainers to Harrisburg for four days of education, entertainment and shopping.
The PA Farm Show contains a variety of equine events, from rodeos to draft type events.
The Northeast Pasture Consortium is an alliance of graziers, extension and research dedicated to improving pasture management in the northeastern United States.
The Appalachian Grazing Conference is an opportunity for livestock producers to attend to learn more about management strategies to increase profits.
This conference will provide you with practical information to help you enhance species diversity in your pasture and improve ecosystem function to benefit herd health and productivity on your farm.
Jana and Clem Malot's farm will be featured on the "Out On the Land" segment of RFD TV.
The exciting workshops provide farm managers education on equine environmental stewardship, pasture management, soil fertility and composting.
This one-day short course will be held in four locations across Pennsylvania. Equine gastrointestinal parasites, and their increasing resistance to available dewormers, are a major concern in the equine industry. Taking a whole-farm approach to control can cut down on deworming, save money on products that are no longer effective on your farm, help you learn which horses have natural resistance and which ones are “shedders”, and help reduce parasite resistance.
When it is very cold, horses will reduce their water consumption and be at risk of colic.

With winter approaching, horse owners will need to prepare and conduct a different approach in caring for their horses. Often neglect is the worst thing that happens to the horse during the winter months. Most horses are turned out to pasture and we only see them in the dark at feeding time. In the summer months, it is easy to provide loving care for the horse, when we are riding every day and want to make certain the horse is fit and in good health.
