Ballard Seeds has a range of pasture mixes designed for specific pasture needs.

Our range of pasture mixes have been designed for ease of use. They are “Ready to Sow” blends of proven grasses and clovers. They are a product of ongoing research and development of the Ballard Seeds pasture blends range aiming to fulfil the requirements of farming for agronomically correct mixes for high production pasture based systems. The mixes are targeted at high production pastures with high palatability and feed quality characteristics that result in high animal performance. The mixes establish easier using best practice techniques.

Grazing:

DO NOT graze until plants are firmly established and cannot be pulled out, 1st grazing should only remove tops to encourage tillering.
