We have some wet, heavy clay, high pH high saline pastures we graze sheep on. We rotate through these pastures during the summer. We can run wheel lines, but usually the ground is moist enough it is not required. What would be a good pasture mix.

2 winters ago our 20 foot aspen was girdled by a mouse. This spring it began to bloom, but quickly shot up a new sucker from its base. The sucker is thriving. The main tree now appears dead. Any suggestions on what we should do with the main tree?

We planted several quaking aspen too close to our buildings many years ago, so we have cut them down this last spring. The problem being the roots are still sending out shoots and we don't know how to rid the lawn of them, even though we had the stumps ground out.
We would be very appreciative if you could advise as to how we can handle this problem.

This will be the third year for my tree to produce fruit. I am having a difficult time determining when the pears are mature enough to pick. The tag that came with the tree states to eat fresh but everything I read about anjou pears is that they need cold storage first and then they need to be ripened on the counter for several days. I would appreciate your advice on this matter.1. Time of year to pick 2. Cold storage necessary 3. Length of time in cold storage and counter ripening if necessary. Also, is there a safe way to treat/ protect the tree from insects that still allows the fruit to be edible? thanks. P- billings mt
I understand the species Poa pratensis is considered having a strong ability to form mycorrhizal association. Have the many developed cultivars, used in residential settings, retained that ability?

Good afternoon. I am getting ready to start growing fodder (mats are 18'X6') to feed 20+ beef cattle and could appreciate your insights. In your research have to found effective machines/devices for chopping fodder mats into small portions to limit loss when feeding to cattle? Thank you.

Can I clone a Columbine by rooting a cutting? I'd like to get more plants of my favorite blue color.. I have seeds but don't expect to get the same flower color by doing it this way.

We have a field of sainfoin. We used antiquated equipment to plant it so have some areas with fewer plants. Can we use a double disk drill to plant more seeds in these areas? can we plant it this fall? Also, we would like information on no till seeding another field with sainfoin.

When I was pruning my apricot, pear, and apple trees I found ring encasements around1/8th to 1/4 inch branches. The bands are from about 3/8th inch to 1/2 inch wide - 1/16th to 1/8 inch thick and appear to be of a harden mucus. They appear to be grayish and sparkle a little in the sunshine. It is as if they have small glitter on themThey are not plentiful, but I found more than a dozen while pruning this afternoon.
