I recently purchased a JD 2210 with loader for my new 18 acre horse property. I would like to use it for establishing 5 acres of pasture and am looking for advice on what attachments to purchase and where to look for the best deals. I am a complete novice so any advice is welcome.

dmhorses; It depends a lot on what condition the proposed 5 acres of pasture is now in. Has it been farmed or is it rough unimproved land? Give us a few more details and I'm sure we can help you out. Frank.

Thanks Frank. It was corn last year and is pretty level. The farmer disked it twice in the fall, still some crop residue on top. From what I have been reading on establishing pasture, I will need to till it, spread lime and fertilizer after my soil tests come back and then wait a while before seeding it. The soil is sandy.

A disk/harrow to break up the top layer soil to establish a seed bed and a small pto spreader for spreading lime, fertilizer, and seed would get you started. A rotary cutter or some kind of finish mower to keep the pasture cut once you get it established will also be a consideration. Get with you local agricultural extension agent about the soil test and recommendations for lime, fertilizer, and seed application. That should get you off to a good start.
