Well, it seems that soaking the livers in milk all day or overnight takes some of the gamey, tin can or irony flavor and just softens it a bit. I hope that made sense. I actually thawed the livers on the counter (not sure if the usda would approve) in the milk all day long, then I just checked to see if I needed to cut off the tendon line and then dredged them in whole wheat flour and pan fried them in some canolla oil. Put them on a cookie rack and salted them. So yummy!

I'm feeding cleavers to my milk cows, since they don't get to go out and find it themselves like our beef cows. Have you ever dried it like nettles for winter use? They relish it now, but I wonder if the dried herb would have as much charge for them???
I was thinking maybe I didn't answer your question right about the pasture planting. I just barreled right ahead and gave my opinion - but I can give you some pointers if you want to plant some new ground with good pasture species... Your list makes me tired!!!
