More Information

The Great Plains are known for their large expanse of grasslands and prairie. With this in mind one might think that growing pasture grass in a grassland would be a piece of cake. But don’t underestimate this climate. Hot summers contrasted by sub-zero winters are common, while high winds take their toll on all forms of life. We have formulated the perfect blend of grasses that will thrive in these conditions using little irrigation.

Our Great Plains Dryland pasture grass seed utilizes five common native grasses found there. Why introduce foreign species when you can work together with nature to provide nutritional forage for your livestock? These grasses are high in biomass and resistant to heavy grazing. If you are practicing dryland agriculture in states such as northern Texas, Oklahoma, Nebraska, Kansas, South Dakota, and eastern Colorado, this is the pasture seed for you.

The specific contents of this pasture seed blend are:

  • 20% Buffalograss
  • 20% Sideoats Grama
  • 20% Big Bluestem
  • 10% Indiangrass
  • 10% Little Bluestem
