Grass Hay Mix

A four species mix for grass hay or as an alfalfa companion. Mix has excellent persistence, and tonnage. Adding grass to your alfalfa hay consistently gives you higher yields, improved digestibility, less crown damage due to winter injury, less insect pressure, and better erosion control.

Best Use: Best suited as a high quality alfalfa companion.

Adaptation: Well adapted to all types of soils.

Management: To maximize feed value for first hay cutting, cut based on bromegrass maturity, rather than alfalfa growth stage. Cut higher (3″ to 4″) than straight alfalfa.

Planting Date: April – May, August 1 – 25

Seeding: 25-30 lbs/acre straight or 5-10 lbs/acre with alfalfa or legume mix. Drill or broadcast and roll. Plant ¼ in. to ½ in. deep.



Your hay or pasture grass seed has to work for you—adapted to the purpose, place, and management you have in mind. We usually carry two or more varieties of each species, ranging from high quality forage to more economical selections when forage quality is not as vital. We also have several hay and pasture grass mixes that combine the advantages of several species in one bag.
