      Aber HSG 2 Multi-Cut

      Aber HSG 2 Multi-Cut is a specialist silage mixture designed to produce large quantities of leafy, high-quality silage from multiple cuts during the period of peak grass growth.

      If you aim to have three cuts in the clamp by mid-June, Aber HSG 2 Multi-Cut is the best option for you.

      Silage seed mix

      Aber HSG 2 Multi Cut’s mixture of Aber High Sugar Grass varieties provide plenty of early season growth and maintain quality and yield throughout the season.

      It is suited to a late April first cut with subsequent cuts at four to five weekly intervals, with three cuts in the clamp by late June to early July. Swards will be ideal for late-season or winter grazing if required.

      Available with AberClaret Red Clover seed

      Traditionally, red clover only lasts two to three years in cutting leys. However, AberClaret Red Clover is the first of a generation of new long-term red clovers bred at Germinal Horizon Aberystwyth, where scientists have dramatically extended the life of red clover leys. AberClaret can persist for four to five years under cutting and is significantly more tolerant of grazing by dairy cattle.
