Experiencing Frosty Berseem Clover in Northern Michigan

Tuesday, November 28, 2017

My name is Jeremy Sweeten and I am a hay/beef farmer in the eastern Upper Peninsula of Michigan, about 20 minutes southwest of Sault Saint Marie, MI. I can see Canada when I look to the north of our farm. We raise about 500 acres of timothy hay, custom raise 100 red and black angus beef stockers, and custom raise 50-70 cow calf pairs on 225 acres of pasture. We are also starting a grass fed herd with five bred heifers this year. My real job is working for The CISCO Companies, Indianapolis, IN, as the northern forage agronomist. Read More

Managing for Trophy Bucks

Wednesday, October 11, 2017

Nobody hopes to bag a small deer. Hunters scout for the ideal spot. They strategize as to what food plot mix to plant to hunt over and spend hours looking over gear.

Turf Research Update

Sunday, October 01, 2017

At Grassland Oregon, we are excited about the future of our research efforts in turf. We continue to look for ways to bring new products to the market that are not just a repeat of what we already have. Some innovations we have, like Memphis, Wichita, and Olympus, have been performing well in the current tall fescue NTEP. We are also pleased to say that Birmingham is performing quite nicely in the Maryland/Virginia trials. Grassland Oregon currently has 3 new perennial ryegrasses entered in the 2016 Perennial trial (GO-141, GO-142, and GO-143). We can’t wait to see how they rise to the top! Lastly, we have entered 3 new Kentucky Bluegrasses in the 2017 Kentucky Bluegrass trial (GO-2628, GO-22B23, and GO-2425). These are varieties that will complement our current stable of Skye, Prosperity, andMilagro. Please keep an eye on all of these as we are sure that they will be an enhancement to your current program, now and in the future. Read More
