Forage, whether as grazing or silage, is the mainstay for most livestock farms in the UK and the ability to manage and grow plentiful amounts of top quality forage has a significant influence on the efficiency, profitability and sustainability of the majority of those farms.
ForFarmers Forage offers expertise and wide range of products at the best price to benefit livestock farmers whether they are looking for seed, fertiliser or forage additives. Forage is without doubt the cheapest source of feed for the livestock farmer and with the correct management and utilisation through effective cutting, grazing and feeding strategies modern seed varieties can have a significant impact on farm profitability.
To maintain quality and productivity and take full advantage of all that modern agronomy has to offer, contact ForFarmers where we believe it is vitally important to use the correct fertiliser to maximise yield, select varieties for optimal quality and use specific forage additives to improve feed efficiency.
ForFarmers use only the best varieties from leading plant breeding programs in TOPGRASS seed mixtures. These are higher yielding, better quality varieties providing improved use of fertiliser to boost grassland productivity and animal output. They include the latest high sugar grasses with maximum fibre digestibility and good intake potential to support extra milk production or improved liveweight gains.
Maize is an excellent source of energy and fibre for inclusion in the rations of ruminant livestock. By feeding a proportion of forage maize in the ration together with grass silage, feed intake and milk/meat production will increase.
Wholecrop offers an alternative or additional feed to grass or maize silage, particularly in situations where it may be difficult to achieve ideal sowing conditions in the spring. It can provide a cost effective, high quality forage of consistent quality and palatability, with high yields of dry matter even in dry seasons and cold weather.
