Livestock and overgrazed pastures are often looked at as the villains of environmental integrity. But what if that wasn’t the case, and good pasture management by livestock owners could actually slow down or reverse climate change? Alayne Blickle, creator and director of Horses for Clean Water, will review basic techniques for good pasture management including how grasses grow, creating a winter paddock, spreading compost, rotational grazing and managing small grazing areas. Proper land and soils management can positively affect horse health and livestock well-being, land productivity, cost-effectiveness, and climate change.
