Soil Campaign November 1-30, 2020
Growing better quality hay and pasture grass is a major goal of all hay and livestock producers. Starting with a soil test is the most important step to determining the amount of fertilizer needed each year. Producers should consider soil testing as an investment in this year’s hay and pasture, because the correct amounts and timing of fertilization can greatly enhance hay quality and growth.
November 1st thru November 30th, has been set as the time for all Colorado County landowners to participate in the soil testing campaign for this year’s hay meadows and pastureland. Soil samples submitted during this time frame will be $8.00 for a routine analysis and $15.00 for a routine analysis including micro-nutrients. Samples may be turned in to one of the following locations around Colorado County: Bernardo Farm & Ranch; Colorado Feed; Dudensing Farm Service; Eagle Lake General Store; Garwood Farmer’s Co-Op; M-G Farm Service; Sheridan Memorial Library; or to the Extension Office in Columbus. Soil sample bags & special information sheets are available at each of the locations.
