Alternative Forage Crop Options

Interval Rape/Kale Hybrid is an ideal crop to fill the forage gap for both beef and sheep with a flexible sowing date of May to the end-august. Interval Hybrid can really boost your profits. Intervals’s exceptional yield potential, disease resistance and palatability is ideal for fattening lambs or dairy cows. Interval is very fast to establish with some crops ready to utilise within 10-12 weeks from sowing. Forage Rape can be grazed in situ and provides an excellent source of feed both in autumn and early winter.

 

ITALIAN RYEGRASS is generally used in short term leys or sown on their own where they last up to three years. Italians are earlier than perennials and if sown in the spring can provide valuable leafy growth through a long growth season. The crops can be grazed or made into hay/silage.

• Very high Yielding short term ley (3 years)
• Very early spring growth
• Produces excellent hay/silage

 

HYBRID RYEGRASS is a cross between Perennial and Italian Ryegrass offering high yields, quality and persistence. The dominant parent determines how the variety performs in the field. Most hybrid varieties are dominant with Italian genes and the best cultivars provide the same or similar high yields as Italian ryegrass.

• Very high yielding forage with better persistency than Italians.
• More suitable to grazing than Italians
• Produced excellent hay/silage
