Is there a reason you cannot graze the pasture instead of haying it?  With a
good stand of alfalfa or other legumes, grazing would improve the organic
matter in the soil helping to overcome issues of low moisture holding in
sandy soil.

  I am planning to seed some ground down to alfalfa and grass mix for my
beef cows. Can anybody give me some organic tips before I start? Also some
organic fertilizers to use after cutting each crop.  Please note I live in a
very sandy area. Thanks.
