- Agronomic: grass (misc. annual), grass (misc. perennial), grass (turfgrass, sod)
- Animal Production: feed/forage
500 acres total, 496.5 acres actually. Rents ground. Strictly grows hay, mostly for horses. That’s what it started out to be. Hayseed came out of Canada. 30 % to 40 % alfalfa and orchard grass, meadow brome, and express timothy (a finer stemmed and heavier grained timothy with smaller head than regular timothy). 4 kinds of alfalfa that are very winter hardy.

I would like to try something like this again but not the warm-season grasses, they just won’t produce here. They would probably do well in Nebraska or the most southern Michigan area.
