The University of Kentucky's Ag Equine Program will host its sixth Equine Farm and Facilities Expo from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Kentucky Equine Humane Center in Nicholasville. At the free event, which includes a meal, extension specialists will provide hands-on instruction and demonstrations on parasite control, equine digestion, fencing options and sampling techniques for soil fertility and hay quality. Other highlights include weed control, vaccination protocol, nutrition, pasture management and farm safety.
"The expo is a great opportunity for any equine owner on any size farm to learn some of the latest information from all of the various equine industry companies and UK specialists," said Nick Carter, Fayette County ag and natural resources extension agent.
The Kentucky Equine Humane Center, 1713 Catnip Hill Road, provides treatment and shelter for unwanted equines, regardless of breed.
