Our Horse Pasture Seed Mix is blended specifically for horse pasture and hay. It is also good for cattle. It performs best under sprinkler irrigation, but can be flood irrigated. All varieties are endophyte free.

Our Horse pasture mix is made up of forage grass varieties that are adapted to all of the USA. Most of them have been adapted to suit certain needs. For example, Oro Verde is very cold tolerant and drought tolerant. Albion is very drought tolerant and recovers quickly after grazing and/or cutting. Both varieties are excellent forage grasses. Quickdraw Orchardgrass is also drought and heat tolerant and recovers well after grazing and cutting. It is one of the most sought after orchard grasses on the market.

The best planting time is late fall (September-October) when seed will lay dormant until spring. Early spring planting is also sucessful if conditions permit.

Best results are obtained with the equine pasture grass mix when drilled, but broadcasting is the most common method of planting. The soil is best prepared with some sort of light disturbance such as a harrow. Preparation will vary from sit to site and will depend upon your equipment. As with all of our grass mixes, plant no deeper than 1/4″

The internet is awash with horse pasture mix with a broad range of prices and ingredients. It can be confusing and frustrating for the perspective of a buyer. Many of the mixes available are good, some of them are not.

Pay close attention to the mix ingredients and their percentages. Be cautious of mixes with high percentages of annual ryegrass. Annual ryegrass has it’s place in pasture mixes as a fast-establishing solution. It is a short term solution to an immediate need. However, it dies off quickly. If your pasture mix is over 20% annual ryegrass, then the long term value is limited.
