Birdsfoot Trefoil

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.

Field Peas

Field pea (also known as dry pea) differs from fresh peas in that field pea is marketed as a dry, shelled product for either human or animal food whereas fresh peas are typically marketed as a fresh vegetable for human consumption. Field Peas may be interseeded with oats or spring triticale to improve the forage value of the hay.

Ladino Clover

Ladino is a long-lived perennial which spreads by creeping stems or stolons that root at the nodes. A giant form of white clover which is very high in protein, vitamins and minerals. It is a good producer of high quality feed and is utilized extensively as a soil building crop. It is an excellent legume to use in combination with other legumes and grasses.

Mammoth Red Clover

Mammoth red clover or single- cut clover is not as desirable for hay or pasture as medium red clover. It blooms about 10 days to 2 weeks later than medium red clover and recovers very slowly after cutting. Mammoth is larger and coarser than medium and tends to be more perennial in growth habit.

Medium Red Clover

Red clover is a short-lived perennial, 2-3 years, and usu- ally produces 2-3 cuttings of hay or silage per year with most aggressive growth in the spring. Red clover is an aggressive establisher and can be seeded alone, in mixtures with grasses, frost seeded with a nurse crop, or interseeded into an existing stand. Forage quality is compa- rable with alfalfa quality under similar harvest schedule.
