seeding pasture

Hello,
I have 35 acres of dryland pasture, unfortunately overgrazed by my horses. They have been off the pasture since October, but I think I need to seed part of it. I've tried seeding before but haven't has much luck. Can you recommend grass seed suited for my area--Neva Rd and Hwy 36-no water, shale and clay soil, some south facing hills where very little grows. Thanks

Hello, we are looking to cut some mowings out from our borders and looking into using PGRs. I'm not up-to-date on the latest research on fescue PGRs...is there any literature that's not behind a pay-wall I can access?

Tree planting

I live just outside of the town of Hudson, we moved from NJ last summer and bought a brand new house with no trees, schrubs or grass. I am looking into Weld County to have our water tested so we can see what will grow with our water type. From there I am not sure where to turn to. Any help/resources you can give would be greatly helpful as gardening in the plains of Colorado is totally different then the green thumb I had in NJ.

pressure cooker canning

I was so glad to find your information and hope that you can answere my question. I grew up canning fresh foods from my family garden in Idaho and my mother-in-law gave me her pressure cooker last summer but told me it needs to have the pressure gauge checked as it has not been used in a few years. I really hope you can tell me where I can have gauge checked so I can do some pressure canning this summer. I called the Wyoming Department of Ag and they told me an auto repair shop is where I should take it!?? What??? Please let me know if you have a better idea! This is the same kind of canner I grew up using and I just want to make sure the pressure gauge is correct before I use it. Please let me know what you think. Thanks!!

English Laurels and fertilizer

My backyard border has 10 year old English Laurels, They are about 8 feet high but last year they began thinning in some areas and the leaves are looking a little yellow in places. Is this normal? Should I be doing something to treat the soil or treat them with a spray? In another part of the yard the laurel border looks more healthy. What could I try for soil or bush treatment? Thank you.

Bat Control

At the Community Federated Church in Thermopolis WY we have become a home to a seasonal bat population. We are wondering if your experts can help us discourage the return of the bats to our church this year. Are there any chemicals or electromagnet frequencies (outside the range of the human ear) that would be effective in encouraging their relocation?

Sincerely,
Jim Kirsch
