      Aber HSG 4 Dairy System

      Aber HSG 4 Dairy System is a silage grass mixture for milk producers who are aiming for one or two high-quality cuts followed by the best possible rotational grazing.

      The first cut will be mid-to-late May, with the option of a second cut approximately four to five weeks later, or alternatively, commence rotational grazing.

      High-performance varieties

      The Aber HSG varieties selected for this mixture significantly outperform other grasses for cutting quality and yields.

      Aber HSG 4 Dairy System is further improved by the introduction of AberGain HSG, a stand-out grass on the Recommended Lists.

      Note: Heading date average for Aber HSG 4 Dairy System is 1 June for Northern Ireland. When cutting for silage, aim to cut five to ten days before average heading date for optimum quality.
