Aber HSG 1 Milk and Meat Production

Aber HSG 1 is a long-term, general purpose mixture for milk and meat production

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

  • Combines an outstanding grazing yield and grazing D-value
  • 100% Aber HSG grasses
