- Designed specifically to maximise the grazing period for cows
- Produces a very palatable high D value grass ley
- GRACEHILL produces superb annual yields of highly digestible grass with extremely high ME yields per hectare up to +108%
- Excellent resilience and remains good through autumn and into the first phase of winter
- GALGORM holds top position for total yield in both grazing and silage management. 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.
When to sow
Perennial ryegrass germinates at 8°C; ensure this is sown when the soil temperature is above 8°C.
When to graze & cut
It gives 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.
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.
