Learn What your Pastures Need

Start with a Soil Test Report. We have links to help you get this on our Pasture Seeding, Fertilizing & Liming Services page. The soil test report provides the exact elements expressed in pounds per acre needed for productive growth. Information is used by your pasture maintenance provider to create a custom bulk mix of seed, fertilizer and lime. Nutrients should be applied in the right amount because over-fertilizing can acidify the soil, potentially pollute surface waters with unused nutrient runoff and waste money for you. If you are still not sure how to get started call our stores and we will help you.

Improve Forage Quality to Save Money on Hay Costs

A strong stand of rich, green grass can be the best and least expensive source of nutrition for your horses or cattle. Good grass is natural roughage and provides the protein, vitamins and minerals needed for a balanced ration. To keep or improve your pastures’ quality, you may need to fertilize, lime or spray for weeds. Weeds in your pasture may choke out grass or could even harm your livestock. Unwanted weeds should be cut down or sprayed with with an herbicide like Grazon or 2 4D.
