    I want to seed our llama pasture this spring. What grasses would be good for them?

    I would recommend getting your soil tested before you put down any seed. Some feed/farm coops can send in samples for ananlyzing. It isn't usually too expensive (in my location it is $20). You could check with your local extension agent about soil testing AND what to seed with and when. Once you have the sample results, you can have a fertilizer custom mixed to improve your soil. That can be the expensive part.... But it can make a world of difference!

    Also, you might want to look into *how* to seed. There are options other than just broadcasting the seed.... Again, you can run into some expense. But, you may also find the seed is quite expensive, so the more seed you can get to sprout and grow, the better your investment.
