What We Do
We provide our animals a combination of perennials and annuals. In our perennial pastures we have combinations of white clover, red clover, alfalfa, perennial rye grass, tall fescue, birdsfoot trefoil, Kentucky blue grass, orchard grass and brome grass. For annuals we like to provide a medley from peas, Italian rye grass, oats, barley, rye, millets, turnips, radish, etc.
Having a good mix improves our soils and is healthy to the environment. Diversity is great for the animal’s performance, giving them the choice to take what they instinctively want to balance their needs. No artificial fertilizer is applied to our pastures. We feel soil restoration and balance happen through variety in our pastures and animal impact through grazing.
