Ryegrass is a highly appealing and protein-rich grass mainly cultivated for pasture and silage. It is known for its structure and digestibility with high nutrients. It is widely used as a pasture for lactating dairy cows due to its excellent nutritional quality. Sprouted ryegrass fodder provides many of the same advantages when its mature, pasture-grown equivalent and the ryegrass fodder feed quality is highly comparable to maize.
Seeding rates are an area of much discussion, but we found you can’t have grass if you don’t put the seed out. Too much ryegrass is a good management issue. So, don’t skimp on the seed. You need high quality seed from a consistent source for high-quality and consistent fodder. At Farm dynamics Pakistan, the seeds available directly affect the quality of the generated fodder. So, don’t compromise for the quality of ryegrass seed and always buy only the cleanest and least processed seed.
Perennial ryegrass is a permanent option of pasture in colder climate zones, but is widely used in Pakistan as a winter grass. During the winter with ryegrass over-seeding dormant, warm seasonal pastures allow areas that would normally lose their colour to stay green during the cold season.
Ryegrass promises many benefits along with keeping the turf green for the winter.
Annual ryegrass and perennial ryegrass produce highly palatable and digestible forage. The forage of both of these grasses can support high dry matter intake levels and are appropriate for animals with high nutritional requirements, including lactating dairy cattle as mentioned above.
Farm Dynamic Pakistan offers high quality imported DynaRYE from Australia. It has more nutrition value for cattle and farm animals. Because:
There are many attractive agronomic features of ryegrasses. They establish quickly, have long growing seasons, yield relatively high in ideal conditions, have good nutritional value, and can be used for pasture, hay, and silage. However, consideration should be given to the lower persistence of perennial ryegrass compared to other cool-season grasses and the increased drying time of ryegrasses before use. It is important to carefully evaluate the use of ryegrass as part of a forage production system.
Ryegrass does not fit into just any farming operation, but in many Pakistani farms it should be considered a viable alternative, particularly those that have grazing as a harvesting process.
