2-3 year cutting ley

Slightly lower yield than pure Italian-based mitures but potentially higher energy yield because it holds 'D' value longer, due to the inclusion of Hybrid and Perennial Ryegrasses. It also has a denser sward and the ability to last up to three years.

A version including Timothy is available for quality haylage production.
