Maybe ask your local Ag agent? They may know a farmer that has the equipment and would do it for you...it's worth the try. :winkgrin:

I seed my own, with a tow-behind spreader and the garden tractor.

I did a google search after trying the Horse Capital Digest online directory with no luck, and found these:

I think your cheapest/best route might be Southern States. You can either rent their equipment, or buy it there and have someone spread it for you. I know Kelly Spreader Services does fertilizer and lime, he may also seed, but he is reasonable and does a good job. Charles Kelly at 867-0238 or 266-3845. Southern States could probably recommend several that are reputable. I would stay away from Jeff Spielman w/Advance Pasture Mgmt. We used to contract him to do work for some clients and there were way too many complaints. His pastures looked terrible and he is expensive.

ETA - If you call Southern States, ask for Kayle (pronounced KALE). He is their soil guy. The other folks there are pretty clueless. Calling the Ag Ext is another option, but honestly, I have never had any luck with them. They are completely worthless IMO.
