Why you should be planting Peas & Oats this year

Why? Because Peas and Oats produce spring harvested bulk silage in only 86-90 days. By adding peas which are high in metabolisable energy (ME) and have nearly three times the amount of protein as corn you gain an excellent quality feed.

The Benefits of Chicory and Liquid N

Chicory is a great quality spring/summer growing herb that is nutritious and palatable for stock feed and when planted and managed properly it can produce around 8 – 16 Ton of DM/ha/year. It is drought tolerant so proves a great option for non-irrigated or summer dry regions and the deep tap root means they can suck up trace elements from the soil.
