AberXtend HSG is the Aber HSG grass seed mixture for livestock farmers aiming to increase yields and lengthen the grazing season.
Grass seed varieties on the Recommended Lists
The Recommended Lists in both the UK and Ireland show how varieties such as AberWolf HSG, AberGreen HSG and AberGain HSG top the lists for spring and autumn performance.
But there is absolutely no compromise on the other main performance criteria, with top scores for grazing D-value, ME yield and overall dry matter yields.
AberXtend’s white clover blend increases digestibility and dry matter intakes and with the appropriate management, AberXtend HSG can perform to a high standard for up to seven years.
