Our Southern Subtropics Pasture Pig Mix has been carefully chosen to thrive in the hot, humid summers and the mild winters of the Deep South: eastern Texas, Louisiana, central and southern Mississippi, central and southern Alabama, central and southern Georgia, northern and central Florida, central and eastern South Carolina, and southeastern North Carolina.

This mix includes warm-season grasses like Bahia and hybrid pearl millet and cool-season grasses like endophyte-free tall fescue and Timothy, 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. 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:

30% Bahia

20% Alfalfa

10% Hybrid Pearl Millet

10% Timothy

10% White Clover

10% Red 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.
