I am thinking of buying this herbal pasture seed mix from Peaceful Valley, someone please let me know if there is anything in it that rabbits should not have. I am making 2 approximately 10x20 rabbit “pastures” to run my meat rabbit tractors over(they will still get a measured amount of pellets and grass hay unlimited. Here is the mix:

Orchardgrass, Timothy Grass, Perennial Ryegrass, Annual Ryegrass, Burnet, Red Clover, Martin Fescue, New Zealand White Clover, Chicory, Parsley, Alfalfa, Yellow Sweet Clover, Milk Vetch, Alsike Clover, Plantain, Birdsfoot Trefoil, White Yarrow and Fennel.

That is a good mix of plants for rabbits, you might want to add some rape to that so you get deeper, larger root crop which will add good humus as the root decays after the rabbits top the plants.
One of the great things about rabbits that have a mixed pasture is that they will smell the plants that aren't good for them and leave them alone.
