Our Great Lakes Pasture Pig Mix has been carefully chosen to adapt to the cool, humid climate. From the warm humid summers to the cold icy winters of northern Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, New England, and Maine.

This mix includes cool-season grasses like Kentucky bluegrass and orchardgrass, as well as legumes such as alfalfa and clover. These varieties are all included to provide nutritious, palatable, and reliable sources of forage for pasture pigs, while also helping to maintain healthy pasture ecosystems. Forage chicory was added for its anti-parasitic qualities, and antioxidants, and for reducing the need for chemical dewormers. Birdsfoot trefoil was added to reduce bloating.

It’s an instinct and inclination for pigs to forage for food. Foraging fosters nutritional variety, environmental stimulation, and rooting instincts, as well as behavioral fulfillment, and an outlet for their natural behavior. This mix produces a pasture that will contain approximately:

25% Orchardgrass

20% Kentucky Bluegrass

20% Alfalfa

15% Oats

10% White Clover

5% Forage Radish

5% Birdsfoot Trefoil

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.
