Hello there, We are about 1500 feetelevation, just east of Sandy. We are converting a tree nursery into a field. We will have mostly cattle but also horses on it. It will total about 15 acres. We have had the soil tested and it needs about 1 to 2 tons of lime per acre which we are having put down soon. I am reaching out to see if you have a grass seed recommendation balancing price and quality. Also do you have any company recommendations to purchase. Willing to travel.

Here are some resources from OSU on pastures and forages:
This is a very detailed publication on pasture and grazing management in the PNW.
The NRCS has a Specification Guide Sheet for Pasture and Hay Planting. Page 4. has seeding rate charts:
The NRCS also has a Cover Crop Resources and Seed Vendors for Oregon and Washington: https://www.nrcs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_PLANTMATERIALS/publications/wapmctn12349.pdf
Please follow up with further questions. Thanks
