Saltire Mixtures

RELIABLY GOOD SEED

Our Saltire mixtures are reliable in their performance as they have been especially developed to perform in the North of the UK.

The reliable animal performance from solid yields of good quality forage is testament to our approach of selecting only varieties rated as 1st choice by SRUC for inclusion in the Saltire Mixtures.
