      Aber HSG 4 Dairy System

      Aber HSG 4 Dairy System is an agricultural grass seed mix suited to the production of high-quality silage followed by rotational grazing.

      If you are a dairy farmer looking for one or two cuts of high-quality silage before focusing on the best possible rotational grazing, Aber HSG 4 Dairy System is for you.

      Grass seed for dairy systems

      You can expect a first cut in mid-to-late May with an optional second cut five to six weeks later. Alternatively, the ley can be used for high-quality rotational grazing.
