Oats Plus

The late fall, early winter window is a time livestock producers often struggle to find forage. The rapid growth of spring oats combined with the punch of ryegrass yield later in the spring addresses these two windows of time when forage is needed. Great for grazing and baleage, not ideal for dry hay production.

Mixture Components

Spring oats

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


Ryegrass produces a massive fibrous root system, tolerates traffic and provides quality yield in mid-spring through early summer.

Planting Instructions

Drill at 0.5” depth. Calibrate your drill to ensure you have an accurate rate. Broadcasting is not recommended due to the size of the spring oat seed.
