      Top 5 Grazing

      Top 5 Grazing is ideally suited to rotational grazing or set stocking, but also offers an opportunity for a heavy silage cut in late May or early June.

      The dense leafy sward produced by this grass and white clover seed mixture makes it the best selection for intensive animal production systems.

      Its yield and quality are retained in both grazing or cut-and-graze systems.

      Sowing rate: 14 kg/acre (35 kg/ha)

      Sowing time: April-September (first week)

      Sowing depth: 10-15 mm

      Sowing instructions: Cultivate to achieve a fine, firm seedbed. Ploughing will help level rough fields. Sow in good conditions (warm with rain forecast), no deeper than 10-15 mm. Roll well after sowing to ensure good soil/seed contact. Apply N, P & K as per soil test results and nitrates rules.

      After sowing: Monitor for pest attack and take immediate action where necessary. Post-emergence weed spray is essential approx. 5-6 weeks after establishment, prior to first grazing. Where clover is included in the sown mixture, use a clover-safe spray.

      Grazing: Graze the new reseeds frequently and at low covers (<1200 kg DM/ha) to assist in tillering and help create a dense sward.
