FEATURES

  • A mix designed for predominantly sheep grazing due to high clover inclusion.
  • More suited to a low input system with a heavy reliance on clover.
  • Especially suited to late grazing of lambs, with the clover enhancing live weight gain.

BENEFITS

  • Palatable season long growth.
  • Persists well with frequent defoliation management (eg. sheep grazing).
  • Less use of fertiliser nitrogen.

MANAGEMENT

  • Grazes at regular intervals and grows well into autumn.

ADDITIONAL POINTS

  • Not suited where large applications of nitrogen are planned.
  • If the clover was replaced with MSP ‘Cutting’ Clover Blend, this mixture would produce a medium-term intensive cutting ley suitable for one or two cuts per year.
