AberMagic 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.
AberMagic is a deep rooting ryegrass with very dense tillers, making it a robust plant under all farm types. Its increased ground cover makes it hardy under pugging and the greater root mass seen on farm allows AberMagic to tolerate reduced soil moisture.
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. AberMagic is 5.0% higher in digestibility when compared to a standard ryegrass
