Crusader - Long Term Sheep Grazing Grass Seed Mix Plus Chicory
14.00KG / 1 ACRE Crusader is a long term mix, with high sugar grazing and early bite making it ideal for turning out ewes and lambs.
Crusader is long term grazing mixture, with the capability of taking cuts of silage. The high diploid content produces a dense sward for persistency under intensive grazing. The intermediate ryegrasses will provide early spring growth, allowing for an early turnout. A blend of small and medium leaf white clover enables tight grazing with both sheep and cattle. This blend will also help to increase protein levels. Timothy is used as it is a palatable grass, which helps fill the summer gap and thrives on wetter soil types.
Also available with Clover or No Clover.

Why buy this mixture?
Images are for reference only and not a true representation of the product once grown.
We use Crusader because it is a long term mixture that provides lush leafy grass which the stock do well on. The mixture produces early and late season growth which extends the grazing season. The high diploid content means that it has a thick base and will therefore withstand intensive grazing throughout this period. Crusader includes a nice amount of clover which helps to provide a good level of protein in the diet. We usually take a first cut for silage and then move onto grazing – the yield and quality of this first cut is excellent and in 2014 we won the All of Wales Big Bale Silage Competition.”
