I am almost ready to plant my turnips and oats food plot. I have the turnip seed already, but I am not really liking what I'm finding at the stores for an oats mix. Not sure how to go about getting oat seed in small quatities from a different source or how much I should expect to pay. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

You should have a local elevator. Go in there and tell them you want to buy forage oat seed. It is cheap, even for a 40 lb bag. If you have some left, keep it cool and dry and plant again come spring...

Good Luck!

Thanks for starting this thread. I was wondering the same thing. The local elevators that I've called have said they have "clean bagged oats"... I'm guessing it will work fine but wasn't sure. It was around $10 for the 50lb bag. I hadn't thought to check FF.

I have had good luck with just plain oats. Cheap, and simple to plant. I just rake up the top soil, or use a drag, throw the seed over it, and wait for some rain. I usually plant many small spots (50'x50' or so)in the middle of the woods, where the sun shines through. Almost all of them grow about 80 percent full. Unlike Turnip, and rape, where I get less then 10% growth. In the spring, I have planted alfalfa, in a couple of spots, and I just trimmed them down again. We will see if they grow more.
