Ryegrass for Forage

Two ryegrass species are of great importance in forage/livestock production; annual ryegrass and perennial ryegrass.

They are leafy grasses that produce highly palatable forage that often exceeds 70% digestible dry matter and 20% crude protein. These characteristics enable grazing animals to maintain exceptionally high dry matter intake levels and result in outstanding animal performance.
