Hay & Pasture Mixes

Your hay and/or pasture grass seed has to work for you. It has to be adapted to the purpose, place, and management you have in mind. First, you need to select the right species (or mixture of species).

Please note: This information is based on our experience with these species in the upper Midwest. Local performance will vary with environmental conditions.

  • For a high-quality, productive companion with alfalfa or clover we suggest Orchardgrass and Tall Fescue.
  • If you need a long-lasting ground cover for grazing, we carry sod-forming grasses like Smooth Bromegrass and Kentucky Bluegrass.
  • For wetter or more marginal soils, Reed Canarygrass might be an option.
  • Annual and Italian Ryegrass work well as an alternative to oats as a nurse crop for alfalfa or as a quick growing emergency forage crop.

We usually carry two or more varieties of each species to provide more options ranging from high quality forage to more economical selections when forage quality is not as vital. We also have several grass mixes that combine the advantages of several species in one bag.
