Pasture & Soil Management
The beef pasture mixes are designed not only for good animal performance but also solid agronomics. Most of these mixes are designed for the cow/calf producer and those raising stocker cattle or dairy heifers. We only use the best genetics and improved varieties in our mixtures so that animal performance and yields are not compromised and these are the same varieties that we would want in our pastures. Many competitors use cheaper varieties in their mixtures to keep costs lower and THEIR profit margins higher but it also usually restricts animal performance or reduces forage quality which will keep YOUR profitability lower. We feel that our mixtures will give you the best return on your investment.

Dairy HP Pasture MixDairy HP (high production) is our favorite pasture mix that we have used on our farm for the past several years. A thick, dense stand of Dairy HP makes more milk than any other pasture mix that we have tried. Thick, dense pasture that maximizes a cow's dry matter intake with every bite. Excellent pasture for stocker cattle also. If it makes milk then it can make meat! We've had dairy steers gain over 3 lbs/day on just this grass mix alone. A very high energy, high quality pasture mix that excels on heavier soils or lighter soils with irrigation. Requires high fertility for best performance. With adequate moisture and fertility, this pasture performs well even in the heat of summer. Excess pasture must be harvested as silage as it will not dry for dry hay. Contains approx. 70% perennial ryegrass for high energy and quick regrowth, 22% meadow fescue for winter hardiness and summer production, and 8% white clover (preinoculated and coated) for protein and nitrogen production. 50 lb bag. Seeding rate 30-35 lbs per acre.
- Top quality pasture for milk production
