Mach 1 Annual Ryegrass | AusWest & Stephen Pasture Seeds
19 March 2019

Peter Soutter

We cut 57 rolls of hay off just 7 acres. I'm really pleased with the Mach 1. It has re-grown again, nice and leafy after being cut, I've fertilised it and I'm hoping to get another cut. Next year I'll plant three times as much Mach 1.

Herb based systems - Choice chicory & Tonic plantain

Grazing herbs are unique species of pasture which offer many benefits for grazing systems.

Thirty kilometres west of Forbes, NSW, Dustin Kemp, manages a farm where Choice chicory and Tonic plantain have been successfully used as part of the farming system. The farm has an average annual rainfall of 500mm which is supplemented with flood irrigation. Herbs have been incorporated into the system to provide high quality feed for lambs and to help fill the green feed gap throughout the year.
