fertilizer for pasture grass blends hay

Asked April 27, 2017, 6:45 PM EDT

We have 5 acres of pasture grass, mixed blend and grown for hay. We do 2 cuttings per year. Can you suggest some fertilizer blend numbers for the spring and second application in early July?

I would do a soil test (0-12 inch). 80 to 100 lb/ac of actual N on 1st cut and about 80 on 2nd cut. Need 20-25 lb/ac of sulfur for the year. P and K amounts are based on the soil test.
