Clover is a staple in many grazing operations. Introducing clover is the fastest way to improve an existing stand of grass. Many pasture mixes now come with clover already added.

Gallant Red Clover
Gallant red clover is setting the new standard in premium forage red clovers. The Ohio State University forage trial shows that Gallant is the highest yielding variety. In addition
Gallant improves with age, out-yielding all varieties in year two of the trial. This is due in large part to excellent persistence, where Gallant led the trial in stand life and was over 5 times more persistent than common red clover. Gallant also out-yielded common by 2.5 tons per acre. With the high prices of hay this makes Gallant a great investment. If you plan on planting red clover, plan on planting Gallant!
Legacy white clover
Legacy White Clover was selected for stolon density, persistence under grazing, high yield, and large leaf size.
Characteristics of Legacy White Clover
persistent, grazing tolerant for season-long production
high stolon density
large leaf size
greater winter and autumn productivity
Grasslands Legacy has been bred in New Zealand, using a comprehensive crossing method (poly crossing). Legacy is an elite selection where 5 breeding lines were selected and crossed after three years of trialing in a dairy farm trial in Manawatu, New Zealand. The selection criteria used for Legacy was: High persistence; High stolon density compared to other white clovers of similar leaf size; Excellent dry matter production; Competitive with grass
Fixation Balansa Clover
Fixation Balansa Clover is a great cover crop clover because of its ability to stand late season seeding, over wintering ability, and high biomass or forage production in the spring.
It can be seeded with cereal rye or triticale to use as a protein enhancing and nitrogen producing forage.
Fixation has a hollow stem so dry had production is possible with it.
As we learn more about it, we will be sure to add more information. Please read this article about Fixation Balansa Clover.
Frosty Berseem Clover
Berseem clover is an annual clover from the Mediterranean that typically does not have much colder tolerance.
Frosty berseem clover has been selected to tolerate cold weather down to 5 degrees Fahrenheit.
Frosty works well as an annual forage crop or as a cover crop.
It can be grazed or made into dry hay. It can be used to strengthen a weak stand of alfalfa for a year.
Frosty berseem has beneficial tannins that keep animals from bloating on it. Please take a moment to read the following blog article about Frosty berseem clover.
