Mixture K is a new, dual purpose mixture that can be utilized for both hay or pasture. It is appropriate for the dark brown, black and grey wooded soil areas. Mixture K is a high yielding, winter hardy blend. When used for pasture, the meadow brome and the orchardgrass serve to make this mixture extremely palatable for cattle. When used for hay, this mixture results in a very high quality product.


 
  • Meadow Brome grows well on the moister parts of the dark brown, black, grey wooded soil and irrigated areas of the province.Meadow Brome is very winter hardy and drought tolerant. It does not tolerate flooding but will tolerate moderately acid to alkaline soils.Meadow Brome is an excellent pasture grass as it starts growing early in the spring, regrows quickly after grazing in a rotational grazing program, and grows throughout the summer.

    Meadow Brome produces high quality hay either in a mixture or as a pure stand with good regrowth for more than one cutting or late summer grazing.
