    Is anyone using lespedeza right now? Trying to find it for a friend but no local suppliers have it and I cannot find it available online!!

    Just curious, what is lespedeza and why do you want it? Something in my mind is telling me it's a grain or something similar.

    It’s a type of forage and iirc it has some anti-parasitic properties. I’ve been looking around here to try it out but haven’t found any.

    New organics carry it. I have not tried it. Would be too pricy for my herd

    They are sold out, hence my question.

    Try Hancockseed.com
     
  8. I've tried to find it with no success. I even wanted to find seed and try to get it established, it's a fairly expensive seed. I have to see where I found that, but once we move everyone to the new forage pastures, we're going to get some of that and other seed mix and put it out hoping to get it going.

    It is considered a noxious invasive weed and is not permitted in a lot of places. Once established, it is difficult to get rid of.
