      Aber HSG 1 Milk and Meat Production

      Aber HSG 1 Milk and Meat Production is a long-term, general-purpose grass and clover seed mixture for milk and meat production.

      Ideal for grazing, the mixture also offers the potential for a heavy silage cut in late May. Best suited for set stocking, it can be grazed with cattle, ewes or used to finish lambs.

      Agricultural grass seed for grazing or silage

      Aber HSG 1 produces a dense sward which will resist poaching and with good management will maintain its quality for 5-7 years. Puna II perennial chicory can be included for added drought tolerance and sward variety.

      Note: The heading date average for Aber HSG 1 Milk and Meat Production is 29 May for Northern Ireland. When cutting for silage, aim to cut five to ten days before the average heading date for optimum quality. Optimum spread of heading dates within mixtures for grazing and cutting results in better performance of the leys.
