Brassica Mixes

Brassica Express

Brassica Express

Sow from the end of March through to August, Brassica Express is designed for feeding cattle or sheep from summer through to autumn and winter. It is ready to graze 70-80 days from sowing.

It combines fast and slow-maturing varieties with bolting and disease-resistance, hardiness, high yield and digestibility. The Rapes provide high protein, palatable leaf and stem which hold quality over prolonged grazing periods. The Turnips produce massive root yield and relatively higher energy.

Organic version available.

For sowing at any time from April to the end of August. Normally ready for grazing 60 days from emergence. Ideal for summer use or for extended autumn/winter grazing. Block graze or strip graze with a back fence.

The Rape dies out after 2nd grazing, depending on how hard it is grazed. The Italian Ryegrasses do not head in the sowing season, remaining palatable and leafy. They will last for 12 months or more and can then be grazed or cut.
