We have been having some problems with our normal pastures for our broodmares. Typically they run out on a pasture that's mixed grasses, but this fall our little Russian farm hand misunderstood what field we wanted worked up,(he's a nice guy but his English is not so good) so my brood mare pasture is in disrepair. Right now their out on the other grass pasture so their fine for the moment, but Id like to be able to rotate pastures for them. My only other pasture is timothy grass with oats seeded over it that the steers normally run on. We also seeded oats as a cover for the grass on the normal mare pasture. I know that nitrogen in excess can cause problems in pregnant cows, and I assume it's the same for horses. Can anyone tell me what level of nitrogen is safe for a brood mare pasture?
