AberGreen

AberGreen is a deep rooting ryegrass with very fine and dense tillers, making it a robust plant under all farm types.

Category:

AberGreen is the first perennial ryegrass to offer the closest to optimum energy:protein ratio. It is a high sugar ryegrass, meaning it has been bred to contain a higher level of water-soluble carbohydrates, or sugars, than traditional perennial ryegrass. This creates a better balance of energy and protein in the rumen, allowing the microbes responsible for the breakdown of forage to operate more efficiently, so more protein is converted to milk and meat, and less is excreted into the environment.

Quality of grass is just as important as total yield. A digestibility gain of 1% is worth 3% of yield – animals have a higher voluntary intake with high digestibility, and are able to absorb more energy from the feed, meaning animals fed on good quality grass will yield more. AberGreen is 5.5% higher in digestibility when compared to a standard ryegrass.

Key features

  • Vigorous ground cover
  • Optimum energy-to-protein balance
  • Excellent digestibility under grazing and silage management
  • Bred for enduring persistence
  • Superior late spring yields
