ENSIGN RED

Red Clover Blend

  • ENSIGN RED is a blend of red clovers which balances production through the growing season, while maintaining excellent persistency and disease resistance
  • Managed correctly, red clover swards can meet the forage requirements of many farms and significantly improve the protein contents and overall feed value of winter forage
  • It's better suited to silage production than white clover because of a more erect growth habit and its significantly higher forage yields
  • Dairy
  • Sheep
  • Beef
  • Grazing
  • Silage
  • Red clover silage has a high crude protein content of 16% to 20% and a ME content of 10 to 12MJ/kg DM
  • Because red clover is high in phytoestrogen, breeding sheep should be kept off for six weeks either side of tupping
  • Store / fat lambs can be fattened very effectively on red clover silage aftermaths
  • Low levels of structural carbohydrate in the leaf result in higher intakes, better feed conversion and therefore improved animal performance
  • Potential nitrogen fixation for red clover up to 200kg N/ha
