In renovating an existing pasture, you can use a non-selective herbicide to reduce unwanted competition at least 2-3 weeks prior to interseeding. When interseeding, use a no-till drill or frost-seed. Avoid planting the seeds too deep or too far apart. Ideal depth for seedlings is 1/8-1/4th”. Remember, all seeds need good moisture to get well established. Irrigate if possible and plant during the spring or the fall seasons (when it is not overly hot) or frost-seeding can be done in the winter season by broadcasting the seeds and letting the snow work them into the ground. Try to treat your pasture like a lawn–reduce and eliminate weeds when possible and irrigate prior to dry or extremely hot weather. Take regular soil samples and maintain adequate fertilizer levels by fertilizing 2-4 times per year. Nitrogen needs depend on a number of factors-amount of legumes, stock rates, manure applications, etc. To know your levels, test your soil regularly. It is best to use rotaional grazing practices with your pastures; that is to give the pasture time to rejuvenate without livestock on it. It is a well needed rest period for the pasture to rejuvenate! By rotating your animals from one pasture to another, you not only increase the longevity of the pasture, but also the pasture yield. Eventually all pastures thin or develop bare spots. Prevent weed infestation and introduce improved varieties by regularly overseeding your pastures.
