Alfalfa (Medicago sativa)

Alfalfa is a deep rooted and moderately long-lived perennial. One of the most widely used legumes for hay production. Also found in pasture, range and revegetation mixes. Some varieties exhibit spreading ability that is suitable for grazing.

Alsike Clover (Trifolium hybridum)

Alsike is a winter hardy, short- lived perennial clover that acts as a biennial. It is well adapted to cool climates and wet soils. Alsike is ideal for hay production in areas of high precipitation or poorly drained soils and for short rotation pasture mixes.

Arvika Forage Field Peas (Pisum sativum)

Arvika peas are the standard in the forage industry. It is a high yielding, good forage quality pea. It produces lavender flowers on a very tall (long-vined) plant. Arvika produces small seed size (~4000 seeds/lb.) with very durable seed-coats and excellent seedling vigor. A small percentage of the seed will remain dormant (hard) and emerge in subsequent years.

Austrian Winter Peas (Pisum sativum)

Austrian Winter Peas are a  cold-tolerant cool season legume. Often used for erosion control and as a cover crop or temporary hay crop. Builds nitrogen and organic matter in fields and gardens.  Seed in early spring or fall. Excellent for wild game food plots.

AV120 Alfalfa

A high producing fine stemmed alfalfa with good persistence and good winter hardiness. Performs well in moderate input environments. Can be used in both dryland and irrigated conditions. A Fall Dormancy 3. 

AVS Green Manure Mix

An excellent cover crop mix for any soil condition. Peas provide nitrogen to the soil while the oats and hairy vetch provide organic matter.

Barley

Barley is an annual or biennial grass that is widely cultivated for yielding grain for breakfast food, animal feed and in malt beverages. Black barley, awnless, hooded, 2 row, 6 row, different awn lengths and different spike lengths characterize the many barley types.

Birdsfoot Trefoil (Lotus corniculatus)

Birdsfoot trefoil is a long lived legume, highly palatable, with a high feed value. It is winter hardy. Widely adapted, easy to maintain and has certain advantages over alfalfa, ladino or red clover. It is more tolerant of infertile and acidic soil, less likely to cause bloat and survives better than most legumes.

Buckwheat

Buckwheat is an erect-growing, annual plant,with broad heart-shaped leaves and a faddish colored stem. It establishes very quickly, has low heat requirements for development, and will produce a crop in 80-90 days. Buckwheat grows vegetatively and flowers until killed by frost. Buckwheat has been primarily used for humans and livestock, honey crop, smother crop and green manure.

Cereal Rye

Cereal rye is a hardy annual grass that is widely cultivated for grain production, forage and soil improvement. Due to
the late harvest of many crops, fall-planted cover crops often do not make adequate growth to provide winter soil protection, but cereal rye can germinate and grow under cooler conditions than other covers. Cereal rye can also be used for spring forage production, and fed as pasture, green chop, or put up as haylage.

Cicer Milkvetch (Astragalus cicer)

Cicer milkvetch is an extremely winter hardy, long lived, sod forming perennial legume. Its forage is late-maturing, bloat free, succulent and very palatable for all classes of livestock.

Common Vetch (Vicia sativa)

Common Vetch is a summer annual vine with leaves that are divided into many leaf- lets. Although considered a weed when found growing in a cultivated grainfield, this hardy plant is often grown as green manure or livestock fodder.

Crown Vetch (Securigera varia)

Crown vetch is a herbaceous, perennial legume introduced from the Mediterranean region. Crown vetch has a multi-branched root system and spreads by strong fleshy rhizomes making it useful with soil stabilization. Flowers are pinkish-white to deep pink in long-stalked clusters. Seed pods are segmented, pointed, borne in crown-like clusters. It is not a true vetch and does not have tendrils for climbing. It normally grows to a height of 1½ to 2 feet.

Forage Sorghum

An excellent and versatile feed option with equivalent feed values to corn. Very drought tolerant. Suitable for grazing, haying and silage. Each option requires different management.

Forage Turnips

Turnips are short-season brassicas that provide roots, stem and leaf growth for rotational grazing or strip grazing 70 to 90 days after seeding. Turnips are one of the quickest growing fodder crops available to livestock farmers for cattle or sheep.
