Environmental Impacts of Equine Operations
Department of Agricultural Economics
This project focuses on environmental concerns for horse owners. We propose research to determine the potential environmental impacts of equine operations on soil, water and air quality. This data will be incorporated into a model that will identify losses in the system in order to devise educational and management strategies for horse producers to improve soil, air, and water quality.
