• Apply 40-60 lbs. nitrogen per acre to stimulate summer annual regrowth.
  • Clip pastures late June/early July as needed to maintain vegetative growth and to reduce weed seeds, but don’t clip lower than 4 in.
  • Soil test pastures to determine fertility needs.
  • Using UK variety trial results, select varieties to plant in the fall and order seed.
  • Use a designated sacrifice lot to feed horses hay and supplements as needed if drought sets in and no forage is available for grazing.
