For KingFisher KF Beef Hay and Grazing An early fall planting is best seeding or drilled 1/4 inch deep into a well prepared seed bed. If a seeder or drill is not available, the seed can be broadcast and rolled firm with a cultipacker. Make sure weeds are controlled before establishment. Spring planting is possible but competition must be suppressed. Most of the upper Midwest is Spring planted.
