OXEN Cocksfoot has significant advantages over phalaris and ryegrass cultivars. OXEN does not at any stage of growth cause toxicity problems. It is perfectly safe to graze wherever sufficient herbage is available. Grazing pressure should be regulated to prevent stands of OXEN becoming too tall or rank so as to keep OXEN at its best nutritious and palatable leafy growth phase. OXEN is a fast growing, highly productive upright Cocksfoot which is a derivative of Porto and is ideally suited to sheep and beef pastures or marginal dairy farming in the medium rainfall areas.
AMBA establishes well and has a strong growth right from the start. AMBA has proved to have a digestibility on the level of the more late variet- ies. This is unique for an early variety.
AMBA has been proven to be a winter hardy vari- ety, which is tolerant to late night frost in spring. AMBA is tall growing and fits well in with mixtures with early tall growing grasses as well as red clover. When the first cut is taken at the right time before heading, no stems will be produced in the aftermath.
DONATA is a highly digestible and non-aggres- sive cocksfoot variety. As a late type it fits per- fectly into mixtures with perennial ryegrass, hy- brid ryegrass, white clover and even with alfalfa. DONATA is adapted to low input conditions and will definitely be the first choice for many mixtures, with an even production right from spring to autumn.
