Proven Nutrition for your Deer Population and your Soil

Clover Blend, our highest protein mix, provides palatable grazing virtually year-round. Clovers, the primary ingredients, are a type of legume that are critical to any plot as forage or complementary plants. They are tender and palatable, and they provide high levels of protein and carbohydrates that deer populations love. Plus, they play host for nitrogen-fixing bacteria, which help maintain critical nitrogen levels in the soil. The second ingredient in Clover Blend Food Plot Seed is chicory, a plant used in New Zealand as forage on commercial venison farms. It has an elongated leaf and produces a taproot that allows the plant to better survive periods of drought, which is a useful trait in hot, sometimes dry southern summers.


Clover Blend, contains three types of clovers and heat and drought-tolerant chicory to supplement grazing.

This option becomes even more attractive if grassed [...]


    During a discussion of the economics of forage-livestock production, the point will usually be made that stored feed (predominately hay) should be a major consideration.  It is a fact that feeding animals during times when pasture forage is not available is typically the greatest expense associated with production of grazing [...]
