Medicinal Properties
Plants with high mineral content and anthelmintic (anti-worm) properties to reduce vet and med bills and improve animal health.
 
Nitrogen Fixing
This item contains leguminous species, which naturally fix Nitrogen from the air into the soil.
 
Slow Growing
Slower to establish but require much less maintenance and management.
Ref: SAINFOIN. Sainfoin is a silage or hay crop that can be grazed. It is drought-resistant, needs no nitrogen fertiliser, mitigates bloat and is a natural anthelmintic. In times of high fertiliser, feed and vet costs, it can be of huge benefit to farmers, and the environment. Sainfoin thrives on free draining, alkaline and calcareous soils (pH6.2 or above). It is not suitable for heavy or acidic ground. More details...

Slow Growing
Slower to establish but require much less maintenance and management.
Ref: MIXLUC. We recommend the use of a non-competitive grass mixture to be sown with sainfoin and lucerne. The grass fills the base of the crop, increasing yield and soluble sugars to improve silage fermentation and ground cover if being grazed. The grass seed element should be surface sown and rolled in.
