About JS40 Horse & Pony Paddock Mix

Description

Our paddock mix consists of 4 different types of grass. Agricultural perennial ryegrass is used because this is highly digestible using only diploid varieties as they are lower in sugar, faster growing and have greater persistence. Amenity perennial ryegrass is used as this is known for its fast establishment and high wear tolerance, perfect for a persistently grazed paddock. Both of the rye grass species used in this mix are leafy strains. The leafy strains are perfect for this mix as they have a high productivity and are persistent providing strong grazing. Creeping red fescue which as its name suggests has creeping roots. These roots create a strong underground system that will strengthen the base of the mixture and creates a tight sward reducing poaching. Finally the mix contains Timothy. Timothy is very palatable to horses and has a lower sugar content. Sowing rate: 14kg /acre for new paddocks. However we would reccommend to sow at 20kg/acre. This will give added strength to the sward and help prevent poaching. To over seed 10kg/acre. Specification:

    Having undertaken lengthy online research to find companies that sell paddock mixes that are good for your horses and ponies, and not based on cattle requirements, it is excellent to see that this one even explains why these different plants are good for your animal. Well done Jubilee Seeds for offering an equine paddock mix of herbs and grasses to promote health but also on very good and factual information on paddock health and maintenance.
