Frost seeding is the practice of broadcasting certain kinds of seeds on frozen ground near the end of winter. It’s an effective way to improve the species makeup of pastures without plowing, discing and reseeding bare ground. Why bother? More nutritious pasture that delivers higher protein content to our cattle makes for healthier animals and more growth from a given area of ground.
Click below for a video tour of frost seeding I did in the first week in April and see the 65 year old classic tractor I use for this job. I think you’ll find this interesting.
