Aber HSG 4 Dairy System

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

First cut will be mid-to-late May, with the option of a second cut approximately 4–5 weeks later, or alternatively commence rotational grazing. The Aber HSG varieties selected for this mixture significantly out-perform other grasses for grazing quality and grazing yields.
