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. This superior dual purpose mixture delivers premium quality grazing and top yielding, high D-value silage. Customer feedback highlights the aggressive regrowth capability of this particular mixture achieved after grazing in the spring and again after cutting for silage. It produces a leafy, high feeding value pasture to push animal growth rates and performance through to late autumn.
