Birdsfoot Trefoil is a Perennial Legume that is a member of the clover family. Although its yields are not as high as white clover it produces high quality forage for cattle and sheep and adapts well to poorly drained or low pH soils.

Birdsfoot Trefoil is a Perennial Legume that is a member of the clover family. Although its yields are not as high as white clover it produces high quality forage for cattle and sheep and adapts well to poorly drained or low pH soils. Due to it being rich in tannins it may help to reduce parasitic infection in sheep. Using Birdsfoot Trefoil in a mix in conjunction with white clover has many advantages if grazed by livestock. It provides good forage value as a non-bloating legume species, and high adaptability to relatively poor soil conditions. Birdsfoot Trefoil’s establishment is best when sown in late March/April or August/September. The most reliable establishment is obtained from sowing into a warm seed bed with adequate moisture.

Key Facts:

• Drought tolerant plant
• Rich in Tannins which are valued for their anthelmintic properties
• Does not cause bloat
• Will last up to 4 years
• Can tolerate hard grazing
• Winter hardy
• Does not like excessive water so avoid heavy clay soil types
• Drill late March/April or August/September
• Add 0.5kg –1.0 kg into a grass and clover mix Birdsfoot Trefoil may work well with a range of mixtures, particularly in grazing situations – so why not try Birdsfoot Trefoil in the following mixtures:
• Shield
• Sovereign
• Herald
• Imperial
• Crusader
• Kingdom

The quantity of Birdsfoot Trefoil you would add in with these mixes could vary from 0.5kg–1.0kg/ acre. It is advised to add this on top of the normal seed rate so Sovereign normally 14 kg/acre would be a 14.5–15.0 kg/acre.
