Assuming you want about 50% red clover you would need 4 1/2 to 5 lbs per acre. But as usual, there is a catch. For frostseeding to really work well, the grass needs to be clipped/grazed very short before you broadcast the clover. in the pastures that are grazed short you will get better stands then in those that are longer. There is also thew matter of when to do it. You need to have it on the ground early enough that you will get enough frost heaving to work it in but not so early that it's too deep. In mid to southern MO we frost seed in February, further north not until march. I like to put it on while there is a thin layer of snow so that I can see where the seed has fallen and not get too much overlap. Next best is just before a snow or rain so it can wash the seed to the ground and the frost heaving can have an affect. Check with your local NRCS office, they are the best source of information for your area. Your tax dollars pay their salaries, so you might as well get a little something out ogf the money you've invested in them
