Graze It All is a carefully selected blend of hardy, nutritious annuals that are ideal for cool season grazing for livestock.
Where to Plant: This seed blend is well suited to a wide range of soil types, except water-logged soils. For best results, plant in well-drained soils where water does not stand.
We recommend a professional soil test before planting to determine your unique soil pH and fertilizer needs. All legume seed in this mix is pre-inoculated.
Soil pH: Graze It All seeds have a combined soil pH tolerance of 6.5 to 7.5. A neutral soil pH of 7.0 will allow this blend to produce the highest amount of nutritious forage possible.
Fertilizer: In absence of a soil test, choose a balanced fertilizer blend such as 15-15-15 or 13-13-13.
When to Plant: Plant in fall, generally from September through November, depending on weather.
Planting Rate: To over-seed existing pasture, plant 50 lbs/acre. On bare ground, plant 75 lbs/acre.
Soil Preparation: 1) Mow or remove existing vegetation. 2) Fertilize and lime according to soil test, as needed. 3) Disc, harrow, or otherwise disturb soil to ensure a well-textured surface to receive seeds.
Planting: Spread seed by broadcast spreader or seed drill. Drag or roll to ensure seeds are in full contact with the soil up to 1/4" planting depth.
When to Graze: Livestock can graze once plants have reached 3-4 inches in height, but be careful not to overgraze at the early stages.
