Hancock’s Southeast Cattle Seasonal Forage Blend – Our seasonal cattle forage blend is a great way to “beef” up your pastures seasonally for the Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter while also improving your soil.  This convenient blend consists of four high quality annual legumes and grasses that grow great in the Southeast United States. This mixture can be grown on a wide array of soils and have great success. The average crude protein for this mix is approximately 12-15% depending on stage. This Southeast annual cattle forage blend is a great way to increase the quality of the pasture as well as improving the soil for future plantings. The blend will grow well in the following states: Florida, Georgia,  South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Eastern Texas.  


We recommend planting this mixture on well prepared PLOWED GROUND.  Plant the Spring/Summer blend April 1st  – October 1st and plant the Fall/Winter Blend October 1st – April 1st.  For best results, graze this annual blend only once it reaches a minimum of 8” in height, NOT BEFORE.  If your cattle graze this down to 4” please remove and allow the crop to retune.


SEEDMAN’S TIP:  Old timer’s say first cow to lay down means it’s time run the other’s out of there!  Graze them hard 4-6 hours a day and remove in the evening to get the most out of this blend.
