Hay & Pasture

Looking to increase the yield on your hay and pasture fields? Our new Hay Program can spur your soil into action!

New in 2018! We have developed two new hay-specific blends for an affordable way to improve your soil health in between cuttings.

With every cutting a field produces, more nutrients are removed from the soil in order to sustain the plants. Over time this results in lower protein grains which are not as healthy for animal consumption, a sparser field that won’t produce as many bales, and ultimately less profit for you.

By giving back to your soil through one of our compost blend products you can unlock nutrients, increase organic matter, and improve the overall health of the field. Increase the health of your field to produce a higher protein and more tender plant that animals prefer, more bales, and more profit for your pocket.

Layer Ash Blend

-CAN CERTIFY ORGANIC-

This is a custom mix that is based around Layer Manure. It takes the best of the Layer Manure world and combines it with DAIRY DOO Compost and wood ash. This blend adds microbiological activity, calcium, silica, and carbon to the soil while also releasing locked up nutrients.  This increases water-holding capacity.

Mix consists of: Layer Manure | DAIRY DOO | Sili-K

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre

Layer Ash Blend With Gypsum

-CAN CERTIFY ORGANIC-

This mix has all of the benefits of our Layer Ash Blend, but with gypsum to provide additional calcium and sulfur.  The organic matter of Layer Ash Blend with Gypsum will bind your sandy soils, break up compacted soils, and improve the nutrient holding capacity while preventing leaching. When the compost causes this blend to heat, the layer manure and gypsum react creating an ammonium sulfate-like product, giving you a quicker release.

Mix consists of: Layer Manure | DAIRY DOO | Gypsum | Sili-K

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre

$56/ton FOB Sears, MI
