Horse Boarding Facility Tour and Energy Efficiency Workshop

Wednesday, September 12, 2018

Visit this 24-horse boarding facility, that due to limited space, must run a tight ship in managing their property for ultimate efficiency. Their limited turn-out areas must remain in good condition year-round and do so through the installation of mud preventing footing material. Due to a lack of pastures on which to spread manure, all manure must be exported from the property. They have recently built an ecology block manure bin in which to store it prior to pick-up by a hauling company. And to lower their operating expenses, they recently too advantage of a Puget Sound Energy grant program that Pierce Conservation District facilitated to replace the expensive to operate indoor arena lights with more energy efficient LED fixtures. Come learn about that program, and what you can do to manage your horse property (big or small) more effectively!
