MilkMaker Triticale/Pea Mixture

milkmaker triticale/pea mix

MilkMaker Triticale/Pea Mixture is composed of a soft-leaved triticale (for improved palatability) and a true forage pea for improved tonnage and quality. MilkMaker is a 50/50 mix. The smaller seed size on the forage pea will allow for more peas in the field, assuring greater opportunity for improved forage quality.

Plant 100-120 pounds per acre and harvest MilkMaker approximately 60 days after planting (when peas start to bloom).

Feast ii italian ryegrass can be used for grazing - or at a reduced rate per acres - for an alfalfa nurse crop.

Feast II Italian Ryegrass

Feast II is a late-maturing tetraploid ryegrass bred primarily for grazing. Feast II is short-lived (1+ crop years), but extremely productive. It is a profuse tillering, quick-growing variety with very little re-heading, making it an ideal nurse crop for alfalfa production. Feast II is less sensitive to drought and heat than many ryegrass varieties. Farmers should see very impressive milk and meat gains feeding Feast II.
