Ref: mix4

A proper late, thick-bottomed sward for summer grazing or late silage making on heavier soils. A high sowing rate of very palatable grasses with good D-values, these grasses have a lot of leaf with low seed yield. This mix costs more than other ryegrass mixes but provides an ideal grazing sward for at least five years.
