Renovator is a multi-species blend of grasses designed to support grass diversity in a new or existing pasture. This blend of six different grasses offers varied maturities and growth patterns throughout the course of the growing season for maintenance of forage quality and season long performance. Renovator planted with Diversifier,legume blend, will enhance the diversity of plants which will increase forage quality and yield.
Stockman blend is a mixture designed to handle harsher conditions and withstand continuous grazing pressure. Stockman blend is a combination of long lasting perennial grass species and fast to establish species to allow earlier grazing in the establishment year. With the ability to withstand the tougher conditions the varieties in this blend are best suited to cow/calf operations with minimal pasture management.
Grazing and Baleage
Diversemaster is a formulation of grasses and legumes designed to meet the needs of producers that want a very biodiverse pasture. This multiple species mix contains all of Barenbrug’s top grasses including the latest releases of improved grasses such as soft leaf tall fescue, meadow fescue, orchardgrass and perennial ryegrass. Hakari brome, festulolium, timothy and Italian ryegrass enhance this blend to give different maturities for a longer period of time, maintaining quality. In addition Diversemaster includes red clover, white clover, alfalfa, and birdsfoot trefoil. The legume portion allows for a wide variation in rooting types and nutritional qualities.
Grazing and Baleage
Renewal Blend is a combination of fast establishing grasses and long-term quality grasses to replenish diminished pastures from environmental stresses such as drought or pugging from waterlogged soils. When a complete renovation is out of the question, Renewal Blend can renew and build pasture stands for extended periods.
Grazing, Baleage, and Silage
Energy Plus is a multi-species blend of grasses designed to support grass diversity in a new or existing pasture. This blend of four different high energy grasses will be best placed for the production of high-quality silage or baleage. Energy Plus works well for grazing operations that are looking for species that will produce milk or add pounds of beef.
Baleage and Silage
Milkway contains fescue and grass varieties that tested and performed well in the TMR of high producing dairy cows at University of Wisconsin feeding trial. Either seeded as a companion with alfalfa or as a standalone forage, Milkway will produce the exceptional yields of very high-quality forage. When seeded as a pure grass stand, Milkway will require a higher level of management. As a pure stand, fertility requirements will be higher especially with nitrogen. This also assists in manure management for larger operations looking for summer manure management areas.
WATERWAY MIX #1
Baleage and Silage
Waterway Mix is a multi-species blend of grasses designed to control erosion and allow for harvest of the waterway through mechanical harvest or grazing. The species included in this blend are selected to not clump for a smoother waterway. This is easier on equipment and a better catch for water controlling erosion.
Baleage, Silage, and Dry Hay
Haymaster is a blend of high-quality grass species that allow the opportunity to dry bale hay during the growing season. Humidity and temperatures make it difficult to produce dry hay in many regions of the United States. Haymaster has plant species that are the best options to possibly achieve this harvest option. Haymaster is also a blend of grasses that will produce quality forage and still maximize tonnage and dry down.
