How Do I Take Pasture Samples for Feed Testing?
Use a bag supplied in a kit by NCDA to hold the collected tissue. Be sure there are no contaminants on your hands or on the collected tissue.
Walk the pasture much the same way you would for soil sampling. Take a sample of grazeable vegetation by plucking or grabbing a few leaves between the thumb and index and middle finger.
