Our 60/40 Pea/Oat blend is a commonly used spring forage option for livestock producers looking to increase tonnage and quality in their annual hay or haylage crops. Forage peas are very high in digestibility and crude protein and do not sacrifice yield. Using a taller variety of oat in the blend ensures good dry matter yield and provides structure for the peas to grow upwards with. This combination makes Peas and Oats a reliable source of quality forage for all classes of livestock.
- Planting Time: Early Spring, Both Peas and Oats can tolerate any light frost that may occur after planting
