Donkey Pasture

Asked October 9, 2017, 6:31 PM EDT

Hi there: We will be getting our first donkeys in February after they are weaned. We have a couple of huge mounds of top soil that are in the pasture they will be kept in. We want t try and cultivate the grass over the mounds and within the existing pasture with grass that is low protein/high fiber. What kind of grass would you suggest we plant/encourage in Eagle Creek? Thanks for your help!!

Hello. I am working on forage options for your donkey pasture. I want to double check one thing though...are you wanting low protein or low carbohydrate (sugar)? You can email me at dawn.sherwood@oregonstate.edu to confirm low protein or low carbohydrate. Looking forward to corresponding with you about this. Dawn
