pasture mix for sheep

Asked August 16, 2019, 1:51 PM EDT

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.

Jefferson County Montana pastures and forages

There a number of good pasture mixes available. I like to start with the mixes available at www.pawneebuttesseed.com and add or subtract. Don Hijar who owns the company was a USDA NRCS agronomist who worked in Wyoming , Colorado, and Montana for 25 years before. Take a look and email me at Scotton1@uwyo.edu and we can refine some ideas.
