DAIRY GRAZER is a mixture that has been designed specifically to mazimise the grazing period of cows. It produces a very palatable high D value grass ley. 

 

All the varieties in the mixture deliver superior persistency results, meaning this mixture will deliver long-term quality grazing grass for dairy cows.

 

DAIRY GRAZER has excellent resilience and remains good through autumn and into the first phase of winter

 

WHEN TO SOW

Perennial ryegrass germinates at 8°C; ensure this is sown when the soil temperature is above 8°C.

 

WHEN TO GRAZE

It gives a maximum production at times of the year (March - Nov) when grass is the most valuable and will form a dense, easily managed sward.

 

The mixture has been formulated to provide grass ready to be grazed for an early spring turnout and grazing ability throughout the season.

 

Livestock can enter when cover of 2,800kg DM/ha and exit at 1,700kg DM/ha.

 

WHEN TO CUT

Although the varieties are selected for their grazing performance, DAIRY GRAZER is also capable of providing a top quality silage sward which can be utilised if grass growth exceeds the grazing animal. With proper management, swards can be closed off and cut at any time as the later heading dates of the varieties in DAIRY GRAZER minimise the risk of stemmy growth or seed heads throughout the growing season.
