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.

Ingredients

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

  2. Perennial Forages in the South

    As stored feed needs go down, the profitability of a livestock operation generally goes up.  Growing several pasture forage crops with differing growing seasons is an excellent way to provide more total days of grazing on a given farm.

  3. Pasture Forage Offers Advantages Over Stored Feed

For most livestock producers, continual striving to provide a long grazing season for their animals is highly beneficial. Doing this minimizes the amount of hay or other stored feed that will be needed. It is an [...]

  4. SOIL TESTING IS MORE VALUABLE THAN EVER

    Soil testing has long been recommended by agronomists, consultants, and others, and for good reason. Anyone who doesn’t soil test is just guessing with regard to applying fertilizer.  If too much is applied, money has been wasted; if too little is applied, forage growth will be less than optimal.  Without [...]
