CUT & GRAZE COMBI

Flexible, extensive ley for silage and grazing of all livestock

  • A long-term, persistent, highly flexible mixture with clover blend for nitrogen fixation, increased protein content and persistency
  • Designed to produce a very high-yielding, dense, palatable, top class cutting & quality grazing
  • Short Term
  • Medium Term
  • Long Term

Key benefits

  • The mixture has been designed to provide season-long production, with exceptional early spring and late summer growth
  • Tetraploid varieties ensure better drought resistance and higher water-soluble carbohydrate content and faster recovery after grazing or cutting
  • Balanced for season-long performance with intermediate and late perennial ryegrasses
  • WHITE CLOVER for nitrogen fixation and increased protein content
  • Season-long performance with GRACEHILL for exceptional early spring growth (122%). An excellent all-round performer right across the growing season, producing superb annual yields of high digestibility grass under both grazing and silage management along with extremely high metabolizable energy (ME) yields per hectare
  • Maximum production from top yielding FINTONA - Ground breaking variety, top ranked under grazing and silage management in terms of yield and quality
  • GALGORM – Holds top position for total yield in both grazing and silage management, with cutting yields up to 16.52T dry matter per ha. No other intermediate diploid variety on the list produces more ME yield per hectare under grazing management (106% of the mean of all intermediate diploid varieties on the list) and is very persistent in grazing swards
  • Contains only recommended varieties

 

When to sow

Sow when soil temperature is above 8°C; clover will germinate at 10°C.

 

When to cut & graze

Produces highly digestible forage from a late May first cut, with the mixture averaging over 70% D value throughout the season ensuring that this mixture is ideal for all enterprises.

 

Can be grazed from early spring through to late summer. If it is being used for both cutting and grazing, the mixture will deliver two exceptional silage cuts and summer grazing, making it truly flexible.

 

Cut & Graze Combi is available as an organic mixture and also with and without clover.
