If you raise goats in northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine, you know you need a pasture that can survive the cold, icy winters and the warm, humid summers. Our Great Lakes/New England goat mix has been specifically designed for this climate and contains a selection of grasses, legumes and forbs designed to supply your goats with nutritious, palatable forage. Goats often prefer to graze on shrub-like, broadleaf forbs rather than grass. They also favor a wide variety of plant species. We’ve kept this in mind as we designed this mix to provide your goats with all their energy needs, whether you’re raising them for meat, milk or as a hobby. This mix produces a pasture that will contain approximately:
20% Perennial Ryegrass
15% Forage Chicory
15% Birdsfoot Trefoil
10% Forage Pea
10% Red Clover
In an effort to help our customers visualize the finished product, note that the percentages listed above are what you can expect the stand to contain once established. For the contents of this seed mix by weight, please contact us to request a digital copy of the seed tag.
