The purpose of this publication is to help horse owners get the most out of the time, effort, and money they are (or should be) putting into permanent pasture management. Discussed first are two basic pasture-planning decisions: (1) the nutritional role of your pasture acreage whether it's to be a major feed source or just an exercise lot; and (2) the options for pasture improvement--whether to renovate, reestablish, or merely maintain. Presented next are step-by-step procedures for renovating or reestablishing an existing pasture, and for establishing a new one. The final section reviews those practices that help maintain--even extend--pasture productivity.
