Frost Seeding Now For a Better Pasture This Summer

By   /  February 6, 2017  /  1 Comment

Its a good time of year to get the seeds on the ground so they have enough time to get into the soil and won’t be eaten by other critters.

    We’re conducting a workshop on “renovation of worn-out sheep pastures” mostly for small flock owners. One of seeds we use for compaction problems is a small amount of yellow-blossom Norgold (low- or no-coumarin) sweet clover in the mix with red clover, trefoil and one grass. We find very little information about sweet clover and sheep: are there any problems with them grazing small amounts of it?

    Thank you for any help you can offer.
