Northwest Iowa Dairy Outlooks

A local discussion of current science and issues concerning dairying in northwest iowa

“If you own a horse or think you would like to own a horse, there are some financial considerations of horse ownership,” says Tarrant County AgriLife Extension Agriculture and Natural Resource Agent Fred M. Hall. Horses are wonderful companions and riding can be a lifelong hobby for the entire family, but feed, boarding, medical care and upkeep costs don’t go away because you haven’t ridden for a few weeks.

This Extension program will be held on Wednesday, October 26 from 5:30 to 8 p.m. in the Brand Room at the Texas Cattle Raisers Building. The building is located at 1301 West 7th St., in Fort Worth.

The program will address the costs of ownership and offer ideas on how insurance can minimize the risk of ownership.

Rhonda Brawner with Horse Insurance Specialists will talk on the ins and outs of equine insurance and offer suggestions on how new and established horse owners can minimize their risks.

Agricultural Economist Dr. Blake Bennett from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will discuss the true costs associated with horse ownership and offer some options available to minimize costs and still enjoy ridding.
