A blend of Ecotain® sown with Mainstar forage brassica as a cover crop. This blend provides a high quality pasture with a quick transition from a summer crop to an autumn/winter finishing pasture.

  • Mainstar forage brassica provides high protein, highly digestible feed through summer, whilst allowing the establishment of Ecotain® plantain as the subsequent perennial stand.
  • Reduces downtime period from a summer crop to an autumn/winter finishing pasture.
  • No sowing costs in autumn.
  • Provides high quality autumn/winter feed for autumn lambing enterprises or prime lamb finishing systems.
  • Highly persistent pasture under a rotational grazing system.
