Tekapo is unique among orchardgrasses, in that it has a low crown and dense, prostrate growth habit adapting it to close grazing. It’s long soft leaves make it highly palatable and digestible with the unmatched orchardgrass feed value. A medium/late maturity, it’s the leading choice for intensive grazing pastures.
Seed: 20 lbs. per acre alone or 5 lbs. per acre in pasture mixtures.
Duo festulolium is a cross between meadow fescue and tetraploid perennial ryegrass. The genetic cross provides summer heat tolerance and winter hardiness. As a tetraploid it has a high sugar content that is easily digestible. Use for in combination forage mixes for hay, grazing or green chop.
Seed: 5 to 7 lbs. per acre in combination with hay or pasture mixes.
Power is a medium maturity tetraploid perennial ryegrass with improved winter hardiness. It has wide succulent palatable leaves, for high energy, highly digestible forage. Vigorous regrowth for rotational grazing.
Seed: 8 lbs. per acre in hay mixtures and 8 to 10 lbs. per acre in pasture mixes.
MacBeth is an early maturing meadow brome with excellent winter hardiness. A long lived perennial grass that spreads by short rhizomes. Rapid regrowth makes it an ideal component in intensive rotational grazing systems. It should not be grazed below three to four inches. Seed size does work well in most drills, but can be broadcast with other pasture seed components.
Seed: 10 lbs. per acre in pasture mixes.
Preval is a medium maturity, meadow fescue with excellent winter hardiness. Combines very good early spring growth with summer grazing regrowth. Tolerates close grazing and wet soils. It is an ideal component of rotational grazing systems.
Seed: 10 to 12 lbs. per acre in combination with hay or pasture mixes.
An endophyte free tall fescue with deep rooting capacity that withstands heat and drought. Bronson has very soft leaves and provides good feed value and digestibility. The top choice among tall fescues for hay and pastures.
Seed: 25 lbs. per acre alone or 10 to 12 lbs. per acre in combination with hay or pasture mixes.
ProMax is a BMR low lignin hybrid sudangrass. Its aggressive tillering, fine stem growth habit produces multiple cuttings of forage with much improved fiber digestibility. Start grazing at 25 to 30 inches and cutting hay at 40 inches, leaving 6 to 8 inches of stubble.
Seed: 25 to 30 lbs. per acre.
A New Zealand white clover selected for its high stolen density, season long growth, persistence and high yields. Noted for large leaf size and upright growth habit. Adapted to rotational grazing.
Seed: 3 lbs. per acre in pasture mixes or 5 lbs. per acre in hay mixtures.
Jumbo II Ladino clover was bred specifically for the US market, out yields all other ladino clovers by 10 to 15 percent in grazing trials. Exhibits aggressive tillering to provide a dense forage canopy. A must pasture component, that also fixes nitrogen for forage grasses. Adapted for frost seeding!
Seed: 3 to 5 lbs. per acre n pasture mixes.
Radiance HD combines rapid recovery, forage yield potential, high digestibility (HD) trait and compatibility with late maturity type Orchardgrasses. It has the complete package of disease resistance (DRI: 29/30), winter hardiness, persistence and unparalleled feed value.
Seed at 20 to 25 lbs. per acre alone or 12 to 16 lbs. per acre in hay mixtures.
Exceptionally rapid recovery capability under aggressive management for five cuttings. StandFast trait for great standability and improved feed value. Disease resistant (DRI: 29/30), winter hardy and persistent.
Seed: 20 to 25 lbs. per acre alone or 12 to 16 lbs. per acre in hay mixtures.
