Optimum animal performance is at the very heart of our selection criteria when it comes to considering varieties for inclusion within our mixtures.
As an independent company, our unique relationships with like-minded companies and plant breeders worldwide allows us to consider the very best varieties for selection. This independence enables us to take an objective view on varietal selection ensuring that varieties are included entirely on their own merits.
We are enthusiastic supporters of our regional recommended lists that together with our own trials and technical experience, play an important role in providing us the necessary independent data to make our selections.
All varieties contained in our Mixtures are ‘First Choice’ as published in the Grass and Clover Varieties for Scotland.
