Calving Pasture Mix™

 
Product Overview
Our Calving Pasture Mix is a blend of cool season grasses designed to handle high hoof traffic and overgrazing that commonly occurs in spring calving pastures. These grasses are quick to establish and form a thick sod that can hold up to high stocking densities. The species in this mix are also very early to green-up in the spring so their peak growth period correlates well with the timing of many cow-calf producers calving season.

 

Planting

  • Planting Time:
    • Early Spring – after hard freezing conditions have ended
    • Fall – allow 3-4 weeks of growth before first killing frost
    • Dormant – mid-late fall when temperatures are cold enough that seed will not germinate until the following spring. Soil temperature of 50 degrees or less.
  • Seeding Rate: 25 lbs./acre
  • Ideal Seed Depth: ¼” – ½”
  • Seed should be drilled into a firm seedbed, or broadcasted and packed
