Ranchers who are looking to reseed pastures or meadows need to use a seed mixture that provides adequate nourishment for their animals as well as the desired amount of roughage. Many farmers will apply extra seed each year to ensure their pastures have a good blend of various types of grasses and hay so to accommodate any type of livestock. It is extremely important for the health of the livestock to be able to graze on grasses and hay that are of good quality and able to replenish themselves in a timely fashion.

Each type was carefully chosen for its nutrient content and growth pattern. The 8 species are as follows:

  • Kentucky bluegrass
  • Alsike clover
  • Ladino white clover
  • Fawn fescue
  • Perennial rye
  • Climax timothy
  • Vernal Alfalfa
  • Orchardgrass

Each type of grass and hay grows well together and thrives in almost every region, if given the right care.

Until the ground cover is thoroughly established, however it is best not to let livestock graze where it has been planted. Allowing animals to graze on freshly planted grass will reduce the plants’ ability to grow and sustain itself.

Pros

Species are specially selected for optimum growth in a variety of regions across the country. This seed mixture produces a multi-purpose foraging blend that is ideal for almost every type of livestock. The selected species of grasses and hay have the highest possible levels of nutrition available, in addition to being able to reproduce and spread quickly.

If left to grow to the necessary height, the grass mixture can be cut and baled. If a full pasture is the desired result, this type of seed mix is ideal. This particular mixture germinates quickly, establishes itself in a matter of weeks and continues to thrive and fill in larger areas. Within a few weeks, the area is able to support a modest number of livestock sufficiently.

Out of all of the reviews posted online, few have negative comments. The only one that was truly negative was more descriptive of how the package arrived in the mail instead of the grass/hay seeds overall performance. Other reviews that were somewhat negative dealt with extensive bare spots that took two or three additional applications for substantial growth to be realized.

For the most part, all reviews consisted of positive elements with little or no negative comments or suggestions at all. The shipping methods used by the company left much to be desired but as for the product itself and the resulting grass/hay combination, few complaints can be found.

Conclusion

A grass and hay seed combination must be formulated to meet the nutritional needs of the animals who will be grazing on it as well as be able to maintain an increased level of sustained growth. This takes a special blend of grass and hay species that are extremely hardy and grow well in a variety of different environments and atmospheric conditions.

If the seed is to be applied to an existing pasture, it may be wise to disc or aerate the soil so the seeds will have a better chance of establishing themselves.
