WHEN TO SOW

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

 

The mixture has been designed to provide season-long production, with exceptional early spring and late summer growth.

 

WHEN TO CUT

When cut, this mixture will produce good conserved fodder for winter feed. Up to two cuts can be achieved after early grazing.

 

WHEN TO GRAZE

Provides excellent early spring growth, making it ideal for outdoor lambing or cow turnout.

 

Excellent early season grazing can be followed by a baled silage or hay crop then autumn grazing.
