Yeah, went off the deep end. I want to convert more old improved pasture grass to natives this year and add more food plots plus I want to go the no-till route. I bought a Land Pride NTS2507. Pictures are stock, it will take me about 5 weeks to get the machine.





I've been studying this seeder and the Woods PPS84 real hard but Land Pride won out because it is a tow vs. 3PT and the mudd scrapers are standard.

Yeah, it seems that way. A couple of years ago, I got involved with The Nature Conservancy on a bobwhite quail habitat restoration project converting improved pastures back to native prairie and savannah grasses. I've been involved with wildlife operations for a bit over 12 years now, foregoing income from livestock operations, but the biggest change I've seen in the quality and quantity of all the wildlife has been through the native grasses effort. In the past, my entire focus has been the whitetail deer, but this effort focuses on providing habitat for the small stuff; quail, dove, horned toads, monarch butterflies, etc. What I found is that by getting involved or concerned about the small stuff benefits everything up the food chain to include myself.

I've made it my goal to convert every blade of improved grasses to natives over the next half decade (I don't like making any change to the land all at once). Native grasses take specialized equipment to get the little "feather" of a seed into the ground, so this influenced my decision on the seeder. TNC will provide a native grass seed drill/planter, but I would just rather use my equipment plus have it available for my food plot work. The quail work and TNC have put me in touch with two other "Quailers" in the county, we have become good friends. My intent is to let them use the seeder when they need it. Funny thing about the three of us, we are not interested in hunting quail, just seeing their habitat restored and the changes that activity brings.
