Cool Season Grazing Mix

    Description

    The Cool Season Grazing Mix is designed for maximum nutrition and diversity for any type of livestock. With a seeding rate of 90lbs/ac and 6 different cool season species, you are sure to grow the tonnage you are looking for. The legumes provide protein, while the grasses increase the tonnage, and the brassicas and broadleaves add diversity for both above and below ground animals. Whether you are feeding cattle, sheep, goats, or hogs this mix will provide ample forage. Use a rotational grazing system to maximize your usable forage and promote a longer vegetative growth period.

    This product is pre-inoculated with GreenMerge and Rhizo-Fixer Plus, to increase the biological activity in your soil. 
    • GreenMerge is a seed applied inoculant derived from natural products designed to stimulate seed germination, increase root and biological biomass in the soil, and improve soil structure. OMRI status has been applied for and is pending. 
    • Bolster L Green Inoculant contains multiple families of nitrogen-fixing rhizobia bacteria plus Azospirillum Brasiliense (free living N fixer) and two phosphorus-solubilizing bacteria, Pantoea Eucalypti and Pseudomonas Baetica.
