Description

This annual mix should be planted from May-early June for later summer grazing, or late July-early August (not later than September 1st) for fall grazing. The palatable tops (stems as well as leaves) and bulb roots of the brassicas are high in crude protein. Mix formulations are subject to change without notice depending on the availability of existing and new products. While the formula may change, the guiding philosophy and function of the mix will not.
