Now that the first cut of silage has been taken, and in some cases second cut is not far away minds will soon be turning to reseeding pastures.

 

Now that the first cut of silage has been taken, and in some cases second cut is not far away minds will soon be turning to reseeding pastures.

With this in mind Lachlan MacGregor Feeds, part of the Denis Brinicombe Group, has recently added a new intermediate heading tetraploid perennial ryegrass to its range of grass seeds, specifically bred, selected and trialed for maximum yields in Scottish conditions.

The new variety Dunluce, is now available for commercial use. As a further addition to the portfolio of high-performance grass varieties it gives local grassland farmers the opportunity to select grasses, which have been specifically bred for use in Scotland.

Bred and developed on by Barenbrug, the international grass seed house, Dunluce sets new standards for yield and digestibility. On the current NIAB Recommended List the variety is recognised as the top in its class. In recent years significant advances have been made with both the yield and persistency of perennial ryegrass and the Agri-Food and Biosciences Institute, Northern Ireland (AFBI) newest variety Dunluce demonstrates this. In situations where sufficient grass is available to satisfy the animal’s appetite, improved herbage digestibility has a very large affect upon animal performance.

Dunluce, along with a full range of grass seeds developed exclusively for best results under Scottish conditions, is available through any of the company representatives working throughout Scotland.
