Arron Grant

“19 ha of Stamina 5 lucerne stand gets utilised in two ways; firstly to cut haylage for winter supplement and secondly for lamb finishing. It is a great comfort to go down to the farm and see my lambs grazing something green and beneficial. With weight gains of over 300 g/head, this allows us to manage our pastures with good postgrazing residuals and also helps us fill any feed deficits.”
