Abstract : An equipment report on pasture drills is provided as Section 8.4.2 of the US Army Corps of Engineers Wildlife Resources Management Manual. The report is designed to assist the Corps District or project biologist with the selection and use of types of equipment and materials available for habitat development and manipulation. Topics covered include description, operation and maintenance, limitations, and availability. Pasture drills are heavy-duty grain drills that combine certain qualities of grain drills and the rangeland drill. They are used widely throughout the United States for seeding reclamation projects, livestock forage pastures, and wildlife food plots. Management objectives for using pasture drills are stated, and applications to development of wildlife habitat are discussed. The design and assembly of equipment are described and illustrated, and general specifications are provided. Methods of operation are described, and maintenance and safety requirements are given.
