    Grassland Direct Drill

    I would think you could order the Erth with a prismatic roller or retrofit one the drill. With contour following it is a different class of machine than the Moore Unidrill. I don't have a grassland DD, but if I did, it would probably be a Erth or a Duncan.

    Overseeding clover- which one??

    I would agree. Irrigation works as well. Diploids in the PRG family are susceptible to heat and drought. However, they are all tolerate of heat and drought. It is difficult to kill a PRG from lack of water and heat along. It will go dormant. That is the nature of the line. Some lines are better...

    Overseeding clover- which one??

    Sub is designed for light grazing as it It needs at least 45 days from flower to seed drop to keep it persistent. It is very tolerant of conditions and soil types. Just management of that paddock might be different. Here are three photos of white, red and a sub growing near to each other last...

    Overseeding clover- which one??

    That looks very good. It could be used as a Proestrus ration if you have such a need. Otherwise, that makes happy critters. It should persist for years. I can send you some sub-terrains if you can't find some in your hood. Just let me know.

    Anybody considering suspending production for a year?

    I can not stop production for a year. But if I could, I suppose I would still be farming when I should be doing something else. But I recon if I where able to stop, I would learn something new about the systems I live in and I would hope that would allow me to be a better farmer and person in...

    Big un

    I hate that when that happens. Big lamb, jams everything and the small lamb dies while it is waiting for the blockage to clear. Mules are good at this. A mule has had her body lengthened and made wider by the BFL Ram. Genetics has little to do with it. About 0.010%. It is all about what part...

    Sowing grass seed

    I would agree to roll if you can and the conditions are favorable for it. Rolling is extra insurance that helps ensure the crucial seed to soil contact is well made and the seed just slightly covered.

    Sowing grass seed

    Looks good. Sheep are great at doing that. I am getting ready to do the same thing. Your picture also how well Rye grasses can scavenge nitrogen.
