    Thanks! Yeah ok. I re-quadrupled my efforts at tracking down a custom applicator (I guess that’s what they’re called!) and got a couple of leads today from a fertilizer company. So hopefully they’ll be able to do the main soil primer application.

    I also got about 50 gallons of the forage foliar spray that I’ll use an acre at a time as I follow the cows around, but for that I think the 25 gallon ATV mounted sprayer with the 10 foot boom will do nicely.

    In general, I think I’m still a little fuzzy about what different types/sizes of sprayers are, and may look again for some kind of information that’s like, “spraying equipment 101”.

    I do think that a lot of folks like me who are entering into farming from scratch are going to be trying a lot of the regen practices from the get-go, without maybe necessarily learning the “regular way” first, so it may be worth keeping an eye on.
