Show Horsw Pasture Mix provides the horse owner with endophyte-free all season long. Each variety in Show Horse was selected to handle the close grazing habit of horses. Show Horse performs well for making hay or grazing. This mix works well in all areas where cool-season forages can be grown. Show Horse is a "horse-friendly" mix. This blend includes Tetraploid Ryegrass, Timothy, and Kentucky Bluegrass. Applications for this blend would include starting a new pasture, a new grass hayfield, or renovating an existing pasture. Use of a seeder, a no-till drill, or a cultipacker is the ideal methods of seeding. Seed to soil contact is vital to having a successful stand.
Multipurpose Pature Mix is a high yielding grass mix that provides high quality, palatable, and persistent pastures all season long for cattle, sheep and horses. Each variety in Multi-Purpose mix is endophyte-free and its versatility allows for use with multiple types of livestock. This blend includes endophyte-free forage Tall Fescue, Tetraploid Ryegrass, and grazing Orchardgrass with a prostrate growth habit. Applications for this blend would include starting a new pasture or a grass-legume hay field.Use of a seeder, a no-till drill, or a cultipacker is the ideal methods of seeding. Seed to soil contact is vital to having a successful stand.
Renovator Pasture Mix was designed for renovating pastures or hay fields./ The mix adds very palatable and high quality grasses into the pasture with quick return. Many farmers and horse owners have grazed as early as six weeks after sowing Renovator Special. The grasses that make up this mix are easily established and can be frost-seeded, no-tilled, or overseeded into established fields. horse owners, dairy, beef, and sheep producers can all benefit from using Renovator Pature Mix. It preforms well for multiple harves schemes including green-chop, haylage, and grazing. Renovator Special is endophyte-free. This blend includes Festulolium which is a cross of Perennial Ryegrass and Meadow Fescue, Tetraploid Ryegrass, and short rotation Ryegrass. Applications for this blend include renovating existing pastures, starting a new pasture of hay field for dairies where and abundance of nitrogen exists, or improve weak Alfalfa stands. Use of a Cosmo seeder, a no-till drill, or a cultipacker is the ideal methods for seeding. Frost seeding works well also, especially if the animals are allowed to " hoof" it into the existing pasture. Seed to soil contact is vital to having a successful stand.
RED CLOVER is a perennial, cool-season legume. It establishes vigorously and has high yields in the first year. If planted in the spring, red clover can produce 3 hay cuttings per year. It is valued for its nitrogen fixation which increases soil fertility. Red Clover is best suited with a companion crop such as Orchardgrass, Timothy or Tall Fescues. A popular mix is 8 lbs of Red Clover and 15 lbs of K-31 Fescue per acre. Plant 8-12 lbs per acre if planted alone or reduce seeding to 8 lbs per acre using the appropriate lbs for the companion grass. Seed in February -April and August -September with a depth of 1/4" to 1/2."
Is a perennial, cool season legume valued for its nitrogen fixation into the soil. White clover grows best in moist, well drained soil. The low growing habit of Dutch White clover makes it most useful as a pasture. In mixtures, grasses are stimulated by the nitrogen released, thereby improving yield and protein content of the forages.
A perennial, cool season legume. Ladino clovers are very high yielding and are an excellent source of protein. It is easy to establish and modedrately winter hardy. Ladino Clover is primarily a pasture crop because of its dense growing habit and quick recovery after being grazed. it is usually sown in combinations with grasses and its low fiber content makes an excellent grazer for hogs. Ladino will grow on most any type soil, but does best where there is adequate soil moisture. it also makes an excellent food plot for deer, turkey and quail.
ORCHARDGRASS is a bunch-type, tall-growing, cool-season perennial grass. It is one of the most productive cool-season grasses, tolerant to shade, fairly drought resistant with moderate winter hardiness. It produces an excellent pasture grass, especially for horses and cattle, and can be used in wildlife food plots for deer, turkey and quail. Orchardgrass also makes an excellent hay production crop when planted with legumes such as Ladino (white) clover or red clover. It can withstand trampling and heavy grazing, has a high nutrient content, is a great green manure crop and is used as green chop (fed directly to livestock wet). When properly maintained and established, planted with clovers or alfalfa, Orchard grass will survive as a pasture grass for several years. Seed in March - April and August - September at 10-15 lbs per acre or 6-8 lbs per acre in a legume mixture with a depth of 1/4 " to 1/2 ." A soil test is recommended for proper fertilization.
BROMEGRASS is a perennial, cool-season grass with good palatability. A properly managed stand of smooth Bromegrass can yield high-quality hay, especially in conjunction with a legume such as alfalfa. This leafy and sod-forming grass spreads aggressively through both seeds and rhizomes. Because of its highly developed root system, Bromegrass is resistant to temperature extremes and drought. It should not be grazed or cut shorter than 4 inches and works best as part of a rotational grazing program. Shallow planting and a firm seedbed are required for a good crop stand. Seed in Feb 0 April and August 0 October at 15-25 lbs per acre with a depth of 0" to 0." A soil test is recommended for proper fertilization.
TIMOTHY is a vigorous, cool-season, bunch-type perennial with stems larger than most grasses. It is very leafy and matures early. It is a good companion grass with most hay legumes and is a favorite for horses. It is high in fiber, especially when cut late. It is considered part of the standard mix for hay and provides quality nutrition for horses. Timothy hay is a staple food for domestic pet rabbits, guinea pigs, and chinchillas. It works best for pastures in a rotational grazing program. It's also used for deer feed and provides good insect-feeding areas for turkeys. Timothy has a shallow root system that does not allow it to handle drought and heat stress very well. Seed in February 0 March and August 0 October at 6-10 lbs per acre with a depth of 0" to 0." A soil test is recommended for proper fertilization.
WINTER WHEAT is an annual, cool-season grass commonly used
as a COVER crop. It has the ability to emerge, grow and produce
ground cover without the danger of frost kill. Winter Wheat is
preferred by deer and ideal for planting in mixtures with other forages
such as clover. Seed October 1st -15th at 100-150 lbs per acre with a
depth of 1-2 inches.
ALFALFA is a perennial, warm-season legume that has often been called the "Queen of all Forages." It is well adapted to wide range of climatic and soil conditions. Alfalfa roots may reach a depth of 30' or more, making it drought tolerant, but it also responds very well to irrigation. It is very palatable and withstands grazing quite well. Alfalfa is high in protein and digestible fiber. Alfalfa is most commonly used as hay and can live 20 years or longer. Seed before April 15th or September at 12-15 lbs per acre with a depth of 0."
