Intensive, long-term grazing mixture with cutting option.

The concept

PERMANENT is a blend of perennial ryegrass and 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 will produce more milk - Ask us to see the fascinating report.
