Pasture for dairy goats

Asked March 7, 2019, 10:42 AM EST

I need to find/develop a blend to plant now for a pasture for my herd of dairy goats. We have 7 acres. Need something that will establish quickly and provide good nutrition. Need to avoid clover. Would love to include lespedeza. Any advice? Thank you!

Renovating or establishing a pasture takes time and work. Here is a link that contains numerous information on pastures. https://extension.umd.edu/horses/our-programs/pasture-management It may be listed for horses but the principles are the same for goats. I would recommend reading Guidelines For Seeding New Pastures and Renovating Old Pastures I, II, III. Thanks
