Cattle producers are no strangers to the muddy pastures that signify Spring is on the horizon. Many producers wonder if re-seeding mucked-up pastures is the solution to restore productive forage ground.

• Do nothing and let nature regrow on its own. There’s usually enough seed bank in the soil to renovate at least some type of forage.
• Re-seed to bring in a new mix of forages. This would also be an ideal time to complete a soil test.
The choice is dependent upon the producer, farm forage goals and timing. Read more on spring pasture management here.
