Photo note and farmer testimonial: “I can confirm the frost tolerance of the Barsica forage rape. It was the last green thing in the field, which was beneficial since we waited for the snow to fly before butchering the pigs. The photo of the pig snacking on the leaves was November 2 after many frosty nights this fall.”

Your hay or pasture grass seed has to work for you—adapted to the purpose, place, and management you have in mind. We usually carry two or more varieties of each species, ranging from high quality forage to more economical selections when forage quality is not as vital. We also have several hay and pasture grass mixes that combine the advantages of several species in one bag.
