Default disking in oats?

Next fall i'm going to help my buddy disk in oats on about 7 acres for deer and cows. i'm just going to mow, broadcast the seed and fertilizer, and disk it in. I want to keep this as cheap and simple as possible, no soil test, in and out quickly. How many pounds per acre of oats and fertilizer (probably just gonna use triple 13) should I use?

I disk the ground about 2 times. Broadcast the seed and drag a guard rail to cover with about an inch or two of soil other wise the birds will eat a lot of your seed.

This is how we always did the oats.. I usually just sling rye grass on top of the ground .. I've planted a 40 acre pasture every year for the past 10 years for my cows..

In my area the deer keep the clover mowed down and tend to leave the oats and rye grass alone once it gets tall.

This year I never used the disc. Shredded, sprayed, waited 2 weeks. Fertilized, broadcast seed and rolled. I got oats about three inches tall now. 7 acres would be cheaper to fertilize with a buggy from a farm co op.


Your co op will also mix the seed with the fertilizer and you can save time. The buggy can sling fertilizer and seed at the same time
