Silage Blends

These blends produce good yields with excellent silage nutrition quality. The addition of a forage pea to small grains usually increases crude protein content by 2-5%. The height of the crop is reduced, however the dense leaf matter produces excellent palatability, protein levels between 10-15%.

 

SILO BUSTER – 50% 4010 Pea / 25% Barley / 25% Triticale

  • Seeding Rate =  90 – 120 lb. per acre
  • Good tonnage per acre
  • Excellent Palatability
  • Crude Protein = 10 – 15% (approx.)
  • The triticale improves the palatability of the silage, while the barley keeps the protein levels slightly higher.

PEA TRITLAGE – 50% 4010 Pea / 50% Spring Triticale

  • Seeding Rate =  90 – 120 lb. per acre
  • Good tonnage per acre
  • Excellent Palatability
  • Crude Protein = 10 – 15% (approx.)
  • ADF % = 32-38% average
  • NDF% = 52-58% average
  • Cut when triticale in soft dow for best tonnage / protein compromise.

PEA OATLAGE – 50% 4010 Pea / 50% Baler Oats

  • Seeding Rate =  100 – 130 lb. per acre
  • Good tonnage and great quality
  • Crude Protein = 10 – 15% (approx.)
  • ADF % = 30.1 average
  • NDF% = 46.3% average

PEA BARLAGE – 50% 4010 Pea / 50% Forage Barley

  • Seeding Rate =  90 – 120 lb. per acre
  • Good tonnage per acre
  • Crude Protein = 10 – 15% (approx.)
  • ADF % = 31.2% average
  • NDF% = 51.7% average
