FEATURES

  • A traditional dual-purpose mixture using a spread of early, mid and late ryegrasses to give early spring growth followed by occasional cutting or season-long grazing (very flexible).
  • Ideal for mixed farms requiring a long-term dual-purpose mixture with early bite and is especially useful when grass is required for lambing ewes.
  • Winter hardy tetraploids are included.

BENEFITS

  • Season-long growth with good ground cover and winter hardiness.
  • Well suited to making hay because of the inclusion of timothy.

MANAGEMENT

  • Graze with sheep in early spring to avoid early heading ryegrasses going too quickly.
  • Can also be shut off late to take a single cut of silage after the early grazing around lambing time.

ADDITIONAL POINTS

  • Hybrid or Italian ryegrass can be added if required.
  • Cocksfoot can be added at the customer’s request if in a drought situation, although care must be taken with cocksfoot as it can become dominant if under-managed.
