Practical Aspects of Feeding Horses Workshop
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Canandaigua, NY - Horse owners looking to provide the best nutritional care to their animals will benefit from Cornell Cooperative Extension Ontario County’s upcoming workshop, Practical Aspects of Feeding Horses. Presenter Carol Buckhout, Assistant professor of Equine Business Management and co-author of the recently published “Practical Equine Nutrition Manual” will present on a wide variety of horse feeding issues.

Carol will cover forage quality, including forage analysis, and the impact that this has on feeding strategies. She will also address feeding challenges related to situations such as equine metabolic syndrome and horses with high energy needs. There will also be time for questions and answers from attendees. Workshop participants will have the opportunity to receive forage analysis kits, with one lucky person receiving a complimentary analysis courtesy of Equi-Analytical Laboratories.

CCE Ontario is thrilled to host this workshop with Carol Buckhout. Carol Buckhout is an equestrian “lifer”. She has owned/ridden/driven horses since her elementary school days. In her role at Cazenovia College, she has the pleasure to work with young people that are interested in a potential career in the equine industry. Specifically, she teaches courses in equine anatomy and physiology, equine nutrition, equine reproduction and she is the Internship Coordinator for all students in the Equine Business Management Program.

As a local connection, Carol grew up in Ontario County – the daughter of Peg and Paul Zimmerman. Peg served as a Home Economics Agent in Ontario County for several years; Paul owned and managed the family dairy farm until his untimely death in 1977. Carol was a Summer Assistant with Ontario County Cooperative Extension for 2 summers during college and her first professional job was the 4-H agricultural agent in Cattaraugus County. The principles of Cooperative Extension are firmly engrained in her genetic makeup.

The workshop will be held October 20th from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm at CCE Ontario’s offices at 480 N Main Street in Canandaigua. Pre-registration is required. Attendees may register in advance online at https://reg.cce.cornell.edu/feedinghorses_232 or call Nancy at 585.394.3977 x427. Workshop attendance fee is $15 per person or $25 per farm and will include light refreshments.
