  8. Aerway Aeration -Twice in 2002 -Once in 2003

  9. Fertilization • Spring 2002: ~ 3800 lbs/ac lime applied • Spring 2003: ~ 4480 lbs/ac lime applied • 2004: no lime applied • pH approaching 6.5 goal (up from ~5.7)

  11. Soil Samples

  12. Pasture Samples

  13. Pasture Sample Separations

  14. Cow Counting

  15. 40 readings / transect 4 transects / plot 24 plots Transects Transects Sample Plot

  16. Buttercup Study • Treatment Breakdown • Data Collection • Results and Implications

  17. Soil Fertility Mean Results

  18. Botanical Composition Mean Results: Fertilization

  19. Botanical Composition Mean Results: Aeration

  20. Summary of Results • Soil tests: • Liming increased Ca levels and pH • Forage Samples: • Legume percentage increased with liming • Buttercup percentage decreased with aeration • Transect data: insignificant • Cow counting data: insignificant
