    A permanent Equine Grazing Pasture with:

      • Increased mineral and trace element content
      • Naturally diverse and nutritional forage
      • Deep rooting and highly palatable sward
      • Higher roughage and plant fibre content
      • A suitable grass content for most soil types

    Our most popular Equine grazing pasture seed mixture plus deep rooting, mineral rich forage herbs will not only produce a far more diverse forage but will also provide the mid season grazing properties associated with a well constructed permanent horse pasture. Utilising a wider range of grass and forage herb species is not only; proven to be beneficial for the grazing animal but also significantly increases the length of the growing season without compromising the durability and persistence of the sward. Plant diversity also maximises forage production during adverse weather and aides faster recovery from hard or persistent grazing.

    SOWING INSTRUCTIONS

    • The area/s to be sown should be cultivated to produce a firm, weed free seedbed clear of large stones, roots and any other loose debris.
    • Harrow or rake over the surface to create a thin layer of fine, loose soil (tilth) approximately 10- 25mm (1/2” – 1”) deep.
    • Evenly machine broadcast the horse pasture seeds at 14.00 kg per acre (35.00 kg per hectare 3.5 grams per square metre).
      Please allow double the seeding rate if sowing by hand.
    • After sowing, gently work the applied seeds into the loose tilth a little with a light harrow or firm rake.
    • Finally, use a light weight (for clay ground) to medium weight (free draining ground) flat roller to squeeze the seeds and tilth down into the prepared seedbed.
    • This method ensures the horse pasture seeds are evenly spread, set at different depths and in good contact with the soil. All of the above helps to anchor the seeds in to position (so as not to float away during heavy or persistent rainfall) and to maintain persistent soil to seed moisture transfer for more even germination.Grass seeds may also be surface sown however, germination may be uneven and significantly slower particularly during periods of prolonged sunny, dry or windy weather even with regular irrigation
