If you didn’t look at reseeding last spring, this autumn could be an ideal time to invest in your forage quantity and quality.

Shield is a medium term mixture, ideally suited to grazing. It produces huge grazing yields and D values, as well as providing excellent ground cover. The hybrid ryegrass content provides quick re-growth for rotational grazing. The mix offers some silage potential, producing a quality first cut mid-late May.

Why buy this mixture?
Images are for reference only and not a true representation of the product once grown.
We find Shield to be a very useful mix on our dairy farm. It produces a thick sward which we can either take two cuts from or graze depending on grass growth around the farm. We like the fact that there is no clover in the mix so we can control weeds relatively cheaply. The Hybrid ryegrass within the mix helps the ley to recover and produce re-growth very quickly after cutting or grazing. The yield and quality of grass that Shield produces is consistently pleasing.
