Long term grazing with an option to produce a quality hay crop. IDEAL Paddock is designed using a maximum proportion of diploid Perennial Ryegrasses, Timothy and Creeping Red Fescue. Sward density is a key consideration as both grazing and winter feed are often produced from the same area. Timothy is much favoured by horses and in particular gives hay a sweet smell and is very palatable. Creeping Red Fescue is key to knitting the sward together and because of its growth habit quickly repairs the turf when damaged by the hooves.
