Mixture Components

Spring Oats

These oats jump quickly out of the gate and with adequate moisture will be ready to graze in 45-55 days. They may winter kill if temperatures stay in the teens for several days.

Triticale

A cold-tolerant small grain with a wide leaf. This small grain provides quality grazing from mid-winter to early spring.

Ryegrass

Produces a massive fibrous root system, tolerates traffic and provides quality yield in spring through early summer

Austrian Winter Pea

A highly palatable, vining legume that will grow up small grains to thicken the canopy.

Crimson Clover

Fixes nitrogen and is high in crude protein. The most yield comes early to mid-spring.

Vetch

A legume that provides tremendous yield in mid-to-late spring with excellent ability to suppress weeds.

Daikon Radish

Fights soil compaction and mines for nutrients deep in the soil

T-Raptor Hybrid

A bulbless brassica that provides very leafy growth, regrows very well after harvest or grazing and has prolific taproots that mine deep into the soil for moisture and nutrients.

Testimonials

  • Cows love it!

    Claud Cobb Hazlehurst, GA
  • By GOD'S Grace I am a cow/calf farmer in North Carolina. My job is to provide a diverse variety of foliage and the cows know their role. By partnering with Southeast AgriSeeds I am able to use the latest seed technology, get ongoing technical support and produce the optimum number of grazing days. Thru Southeast's help I am also continually improving the quality of my baled hay.
