    Try these guys... may be a little far for you but they rent equipment and are good to deal with.

    I second getting with you local Agg service. The other place to look is with seeding companies in the construction business to rent or have them drill for you.

    I am in the process of doing the same thing, but come to find out I needed to kill off the existing pasture first for the new seed to work. I have irrigated pasture. The existing pasture grass mix would not have allowed the new seed germination.

    So I am using generic round up, then coming back 3 weeks later and tilling with a PTO tiller. Once tilled I am using an old sears broadcast seeder followed by a harrow to get the seed into the soil. Finally I am running a landscape drum roller to be sure I have good seed/soil contact.

    I would expect you will need to thoroughly need to harrow the pasture before you start. Also be sure to kill off any weeds now as they hamper seed germination.

    Your pasture and seed may be different, so check with the experts.
