Our Grass Seed Mixtures

Drummonds have always been renowned as leading purveyors of top performing grass seeds

Super Grow Grass Seed Mix
SUPER GROW

General Purpose / Permanent Pasture Mixture


Sweet Bite’s formulation focuses on varieties which have proven superior palatability, ‘grazeability’ and digestibility. Together with excellent early spring and late autumn growth, Sweet Bite swards are delivering greater levels of animal performance from grazed grass alone.

Pit Buster Pro

A medium-term (3-4 year) specialist cutting mixture containing Hybrid Ryegrasses (Perennial Ryegrass x Italian Ryegrass) and Red Clover.

Sweet Bite Seed Mix
SWEET BITE

Specialist Grazing Mixture


Progressive grassland management centres around not only growing more grass but also utilising more of this grass. Sweetbite’s formulation focuses on varieties which have proven superior palatability, ‘grazeability’ and digestibility.

Multi Species Swards
MULTI SPECIES SWARDS


A multi-species mixture consists of two or more species. Perennial ryegrass and other grass species tend to make up the backbone of these mixtures along with legumes and herbs. Performance from multi-species mixtures is achieved due to the complementary characteristics of the different plant types. A variety of leaf and root architecture maximises the use of light, moisture and nutrients above and below ground.

Mega Bite Mix
MEGA BITE

Intensive Silage Mixture


A dedicated intensive silage mixture designed to produce multiple high yielding, quality silage cuts, ‘consistently, year after year. Spring growth of ‘intermediates’ is ahead of ‘lates’- which is ideal for targeting a cut of high DMD silage in early to mid May.

Gold Bite Mix
GOLD BITE

Dual Purpose Mixture


This high performance and proven mixture fits the bill on livestock farms where there is demand for early spring grazing; then closing up for one quality cut of silage in late May/early June; and grazing thereafter for the summer and on into late autumn.

Restorator
RESTORATOR

Sward Rejuvenation Mixture 


A specialist mixture designed for overseeding containing all late heading tetraploids. An increasing number of farmers find overseeding to be a cost effective solution to replenishing and maintaining grass quality and yields. Good grazing management is essential to encourage tillering after overseeding.

Heavy Ground Mix
HEAVY GROUND

Difficult Soils Mixture


A blend of perennial ryegrasses, timothy & white clover carefully selected for their ability to perform and persist under difficult soil conditions. Sward density & winter hardiness are key features of this mixture.

Irish Grassland Farms – Producing A World Class Product

Irish grass fed farming systems are internationally recognised as producers of top quality feed products. The fact that our beef and milk is produced off grass is what sets Ireland apart in producing a world famous product. Given the importance of our grassland farms, reseeding is one of the best investments any Irish farmer can make particularly since grass is the cheapest and most productive feed of all for dairy, beef and sheep enterprises.

Grass is a fundamental part of livestock farming in Ireland. Our green image sets us apart from others worldwide and gives us a distinct advantage in the marketplace. For farmers, grass provides a nutritious and cheap feed source that can improve farm profitability.

Identifying poorer performing swards and renewing pastures regularly is important to maximise productivity and maintain pasture quality. New grass varieties can produce more grass and will be of higher quality. A full reseed is advised where Perennial ryegrass content of a sward falls below 60%.

When reseeding, farmers should always use varieties that are performing well on the Teagasc PPI (Pasture Profit Index) and Department recommended lists. Consideration needs to be given to other grass variety traits such as Spring growth, sward density, digestibility or total potential yield.

The Green Acres range is made up top performing varieties that lead the way on the PPI.

Why re-seed with Green Acres mixtures?

Premium mixtures that contain only those varieties that have been proven to work under Irish conditions.
Our mixtures are formulated in consultation with Teagasc Moorepark and the specially chosen varieties are selected under strict criteria based on their performance in overall yield, spring & autumn growth, digestability and persistency / ground cover.

Give Excellent Grass Yields and Superior Feeding Value. A 1% improvement in sward DMD equates to a 5% improvement in animal performance. Moorepark have found that reseeded swards give typically 8% higher milk output per hectare.
Sward persistency and longevity permits higher stocking rates.
Swards are more nutrient efficient - + 25% more responsive to Nitrogen.
