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.

What I highlighted was the key for me when I was feeding all those leases. It's not just one thing, it's the whole "ecosystem" if you will. You make changes and that starts making other changes...some for better, some for worse.

Love that feeder. Hope it works for ya.

The LandPride NTS2507 finally arrived yesterday evening.





Had it been a little bit earlier, I would have planted some summer plots, but I plant my fall seeds on September 18th which is only 88 days from now. I think that I will use my empty plots to play with this planter while I learn how to use it. I read every word of the user manual back in May and rather than rush it, really go through this piece of equipment inside and out.

My contact and friend at The Nature Conservancy will be out next week to offer advice on the native grasses which will be planted the last week of August. I want to plant that seed anywhere I can get the planter into and all my senderos that are not already food plots and all my road beds.
