This week I will be planting my pastures, they have been fallow for 40 years. I contacted my local extension agent and this is the mixture he suggested: I would suggest that you plant a mixture of Meadow Bromegrass, Orchardgrass and White Clover at a rate of 12, 8 and 2 pounds respectively. I would make no differentiation between the sunny and shady areas. I live in Utah so it is pretty dry, however I have pressurized irrigation throughout my property. What other recommendations would you have? How long does it take for a pasture to mature? Do I need to keep the goats off of it until next spring? thanks in advance!
