Clovers

Prairie Creek Seed clovers are known for delivering exceptional forage quality for livestock.  Clovers introduced into grass stands will increase yield and quality of the pasture or alternative forage crops. This is achieved by the clovers fixing nitrogen in the soil for other vegetation and microbes to utilize all while promoting the symbiotic relationship between the plant species. We select these clovers to enhance the quality of the pasture and provide premium yields. This diversity improves palatability and the nutritional value of the forages for your livestock operation.

DIVERSIFIER

Legume Blend

Diversifier is a blend of six different legume species that will grow and mature at different stages throughout the grazing season. This blend can be interseeded into existing grass stands for improving the soil biology and increase the quality of the pasture during the grazing season. Legumes supply nitrogen to the grasses and this reduces the amount of supplemental nitrogen needed to be applied to the fields. The more species that are present results in greater soil health and improved digestibility for livestock.

FREEDOM! MR

Red Clover

Freedom! MR is free from pubescence (glandular hairs) and is generally utilized in mixed plantings with grass for hay, but can also be successfully applied to a wide range of applications such as silage. During ensiling, red clovers tend to maintain a high proportion of true protein. This greatly enhances the feed value of the silage. This is a fast drying clover and reduces the chance of quality loss due to rainfall after cutting because Freedom! MR has less pubescence. This red clover thrives in many grazing situations and provides high-quality forage with fast regrowth.

ALICE

White Clover

Alice white clover is a perennial legume that spreads through the sward with branching stolons. As a legume, white clover has the ability to produce its own nitrogen through a symbiotic process with Rhizobium bacteria in the root nodules. Alice is very palatable for livestock and produces large leaves. This is the first white clover variety to successfully combine large leaves and persistence. It is mainly used in grazing pastures for its high nutritive value in both protein and minerals. Alice white clover is a perfect companion with cool-season perennial grasses such as perennial ryegrass, orchardgrass, and tall fescue.
