Pasture establishment is vital to ensure high levels of production pastures. Before establishing new pastures or renovating existing pastures, producers must evaluate the farm’s forage needs. It is important to consider how the forage will be used (grazing vs. hay), what species might be more adapted to the area, and what resources (equipment, money, and time) are available. Renovating a pasture should be based on existing percentages of the desirable species present in the pasture.
