Prepping the Pastures


Spring time is all about new growth. 

Nothing says new growth like trees budding, bluebonnets blossoming, and baby chicks.  It’s also time to get to ready for the spring flush. Throughout most of the winter, we kept the cattle on a 10 acre paddock and we rolled out round bales of hay for them to eat. As mentioned before, rolling out the hay helps distribute the manure and the cows leave behind lots of residue.  

So this weekend I disked all of that residual hay and manure into the soil along with 300 pounds of Sorghum-Sudan grass.  In addition to feeding the soil microbes, I’m hoping to get a lush stand of high energy grass to keep the cattle happy.

For the remaining pasture, we added 88 tons of chicken litter. The chicken litter should add lots of organic matter and nitrogen to the soil. Though things are a bit pungent right now, I believe the chicken litter has a longer lasting affect than chemical fertilizers.
