SWEET BITE Specialist Grazing Mixture
A tried & tested market leading mixture, made up of the top performing varieties on the Teagasc PPI List. Sweetbite’s formulation focuses on varieties which have proven superior palatability, ‘grazeability’ and digestibility. Together with excellent early spring and late autumn growth, Sweetbite swards are delivering greater levels of animal performance from grazed grass alone. Feedback from farmers informs us that clean-outs of Sweet Bite swards are excellent; pasture quality & animal performance continues right through the summer & into the autumn; & many dairy farmers consistently see a lift in milk yield when their cows go into a Sweet Bite sward as part of their grazing rotation.
ATTENTION DEROGATION FARMERS!
New Nitrates Derogation legislation stipulates that at least 1.5 kilos per hectare (0.6 kg/acre) of ‘naked’ clover seed or 2.5 kilo per hectare of 'coated' clover seed (equivalent to 1.0 kg/acre) is incorporated in ALL grass seed mixtures when reseeding. Alternatively over-sowing with clover seed following the post-emergence herbicide is a permitted option under the new rules.
This MUST be done in the same calendar year in which the reseed is sown.
WE CAN SUPPLY ANY OF OUR MIXTURES AND/OR FORMULATE A SPECIAL MIXTURE WITH OR WITHOUT CLOVER.
WE CAN ALSO INCREASE THE INCLUSION LEVEL OF CLOVER SEED ON REQUEST.
