WE GOT AN EARLY START THIS MORNING AND SEEDED A PADDOCK THE CALVES WENT INTO MONDAY NIGHT…THIS FIRST PHOTO IS TO SHOW THE SMALL SIZE OF MOST OF MY PADDOCKS…THIS ONE IS ABOUT 40 FEET BY 100 FEET AND IT CARRIED FIVE WEANLING CALVES FOR FOUR DAYS

SEEDED WITH 4 LBS PEARL MILLET, 4 LBS OF COWPEAS, 1LB OF KOREAN AND 1 LB OF FOXTAIL MILLET.  THE SEED WAS BROADCAST AND THEN I WENT OVER IT WITH MY HIGH TECH SOWING EQUIPMENT

ABOUT 40 FT BY 100 FT

MARIE SENT A SUPERVISOR TO MAKE SURE i DID EVERYTHING RIGHT.

SUPERVISOR

BELOW IS A PADDOCK RESEEDED LAST WEEK

SEEDED ON WEEK AGO

THIS IS A CLOSEUP SHOT THAT SHOWS THE RESIDUE AND THAT THE SEED WAS PRETTY WELL COVERED UP WITH MY HIGH TECH PROCESS.

RESIDUE AND SEED SEEMS COVERED

THIS IS THE CALVES PREPPING THE NEXT PADDOCK FOR SEEDING…YEAH IT IS A LITTLE WEEDY BUT IT HAS NOT BEEN GRAZED SINCE EARLY SPRING WHEN THE GOATS WERE IN THESE PADDOCKS.

PREPING A LOT FOR SEEDING

THIS IS THE ADJOINING PADDOCK THAT WAS SEEDED ON JULY 4TH….IT WAS TOO WET THEN TO PUT THE TRACTOR ON IN. SO THE DOCK SEED HEADS ARE STILL THERE….i DON’T WORRY ABOUT DOCK ON THE COW SIDE AS THEY WILL EAT IT….THE HORSES NOT SO MUCH.  THE SEED SOWN ON TH E4TH IS ALREADY UP

LOT BROADCAST LAST WEEK

THIS IS THE LOT THE HORSES HAD THIS WEEK….FOR NEARLY A WEEK….THREE HORSES AND TWO MINI DONKS.  THEY GRAZED A LOT AND WALKED A LOT DOWN….LOADS OF RESIDUE….TOO WET TO GET ON WITH TRACTOR SO i AM JUST SHUTTING IT OFF AND LETTING THE PRETTY GOOD GRASS REGENERATE.

HORSE LOT JUST GRAZED TOO WET TO GET ON

HERE IS THE HIGH TECH EQUIPMENT….I BROADCAST THE SEED BECAUSE MY EXPENSIVE EQUIPMENT DOES NOT DROP SEED EVENLY BUT IT DOES A PRETTY GOOD JOB OF GETTING IT TO THE SOIL…AFTER BROADCASTING SEED THIS MORNING THERE WERE SEED EVERYWHERE…AFTER MOWING AND AERATING YOU REALLY HAD TO LOOK FOR THE SEED.  MY THANKS TO THE LOCAL STARLING FLOCK WHO SENT IN A SPECIAL TEAM TO HELP ME FIND SEED.

HIGH TECH EQUIPMENT

BELOW IS A CLOSEUP OF THE WEEDY LOT BROADCAST ON THE 4TH…SEED IS COMING UP….I USED A MUCH MORE DIVERSE MIX ON THIS PADDOCK THAN i USED TODAY.

BIG BULL 1 COMING UP

THIS IS TODAYS PADDOCK SEEN FORM THE OTHER END.  THE GREEN IN THE BACKGROUND IS A PADDOCK THAT WAS SIMILARLY SEEDED TWO WEEKS AGO.  BUT IT HAS A PRETTY STRONG STAND OF ORCHARDGRASS FESCUE AND CLOVER….WE WILL SEE HOW THE COVER SPECIES DO IN IT.
