PERMANENT (NI)

Intensive long-term grazing mixture with cutting option

  • A blend of perennial ryegrass and optional white clover designed to give season-long production from a dense, prolific ley
  • This long-term mixture gives the option of taking later cuts of top quality silage
  • Trials at Moorepark in Eire have shown that cows grazed on this type of ley, with clover, will produce more milk
  • Short Term
  • Medium Term
  • Long Term

Key benefits

  • Increased milk yields
  • Tetraploid varieties carefully selected to ensure higher water soluble carbohydrate content while not sacrificing sward density
  • CALLAN offers excellent grazing yields with exceptional spring growth producing 14% more grass in early spring than comparative varieties
  • White clover option is is very palatable and highly nutritious, nitrogen fixating and increased protein content
  • GLENARM's key feature is an excellent first cut yield of 109% of control and good early grazing 103%

 

When to sow

Perennial ryegrass germinates at 8°C; ensure this is sown when soil temperature is above 8°C, clover will germinate at 10°C.

 

When to graze & cut

Designed for intensive grazing between early summer and autumn, with the aim of providing balanced production from turnout to late autumn. PERMANENT produces a dense, leafy, persistent and easily managed ley that produces highly palatable and digestible grass. Although a grazing mixture, there is the option of taking later cuts of top quality silage if required.

 

Available without clover

When adjusted without clover, extra 1kg of Callan is included.
