The growing and feeding horse hay course is focused on hay production and feeding in the Midwest. Weekly topics include hay field establishment and management, harvesting and storing high-quality hay, submitting and interpreting an equine hay analysis, tips on buying and selling hay, hay options for diseased horses, hay feeding, and estimating hay needs.

All courses are offered completely online, information can be accessed at any time, and courses are semi self-paced. To earn a certificate of course completion, participants must earn ≥70% on three 10-point multiple choice quizzes and participate in three course discussions or assignments by the due date. If a certificate is not wanted, participants do not have to complete quizzes, course discussions, or assignments. Courses are recommended for adult learners (ages 18 and older) but are open to everyone. Courses do not result in college credit.
