Annual ryegrass is a highly adaptable and widely used forage pasture well known for rapid growth and establishment. Sowing annual ryegrass pasture seed will provide quick feed under irrigated conditions and is highly palatable to livestock. Annual ryegrass seed is often sown for its ability to grow in a variety of soil types and climatic conditions and is an ideal forage pasture choice for quick winter feed, cattle feed, sheep feed and cow feed. Suitable for grazing, hay and silage production. DLF Seeds annual ryegrass pasture grass seeds are available from local Australian rural retailers. Implement rotational grazing for best results.
Cocksfoot is a moderately deep rooted perennial forage grass that is most suited to well drained soils and temperate regions. Sow cocksfoot pasture seed for a pasture grass with improved acidic soil tolerance over perennial ryegrass. Cocksfoot provides good forage for livestock feed and is suitable for grazing, hay and silage production. Cocksfoot is very responsive to summer rainfall and is often the first plant to have new leaves emerge. Suitable for low rainfall and dryland operations, Cocksfoot can become a drought resistant pasture grass under the correct environment and management. Implement rotational grazing for best results.
Forage grasses, such as Italian ryegrass provide farmers with a high quality and fast establishing pasture for 1-2 years and are an excellent choice for livestock grazing, hay and silage production. Sow Italian ryegrass pasture seed for palatable and nutritious cattle food and sheep food. As a versatile forage ryegrass, Italians offer bulk winter feed and good regrowth potential throughout autumn, winter and spring. Implement rotational grazing for best results.
Hybrid ryegrasses are bred from a perennial ryegrass crossed with a varying percentage of Italian ryegrass that persists longer than traditional annual and Italian ryegrasses. Depending on conditions, a hybrid ryegrass provides more cool season growth when compared to perennial ryegrass and can persist for 2-4 years. DLF Seeds hybrid ryegrass pasture seed can be sown as a quality beef finishing and lamb finishing crop, produces high quality hay and silage and, produces high yields for quality cattle feed and sheep feed.
Perennial ryegrass pasture seed produces a high performance pasture grass that can persist for 3 to 5+ years depending on climate and with rotational grazing and good management implemented. Known for its nutritional value, perennial ryegrass contains high levels of protein making it highly palatable for livestock. Sow DLF Seeds perennial ryegrass seed with AR37 endophyte for premium insect protection. Perennial ryegrass produces quality livestock feed and is suitable forage for grazing, hay and silage production.
Phalaris is a deep rooted perennial grass, best suited to dryland pastoral systems. It’s deep taproot system allows it to be very persistent once established. Phalaris seed is best sown in to highly fertile, heavy textured and deep soils. Phalaris is more tolerant to wet soils, flooding and saline soils over other pasture grass species. Sow phalaris pasture seed for livestock feed in areas where ryegrasses do not persist. Under the correct environment and management, Phalaris can become a drought resistant pasture grass.
Prairie grass is an alternative short to long rotation pasture grass that provides high quality sheep feed and cattle feed in late summer/autumn/winter and early spring. With strong winter production, sowing prairie grass pasture seed will provide farmers with palatable livestock feed during cooler conditions, while also offering improved heat tolerance over ryegrass pasture grass. Implement rotational grazing for best results.
Tall fescue is a highly productive perennial grass featuring a deep fibrous root system that is most suited to deep, heavy, fertile soil conditions. Sow tall fescue seed for a highly productive, summer pasture that responds well to moisture in hot conditions. Tall fescue pasture grass is suitable for cattle feed, sheep feed and livestock feed in areas where ryegrasses do not persist.
Grazing brome is a perennial pasture grass species, closely related to prairie grass. It has a dense habit of fine tillers which ensures persistence in harsh environments and under heavy grazing. Performing best on well drained soils with moderate fertility, grazing brome is palatable and provides livestock feed to all stock classes. Sow brome pasture seed on farm for grazing, cattle food, sheep food, hay and silage.
