The Cow Conditioner BMR sorghum sudangrass and millet in the mix provide high levels of dry matter production during the hot and dry summer months. The forage brassicas in the blend increase the overall protein content and digestibility of the diet. Brassicas also give the mix a good degree of cold tolerance and will remain green and lush long after the warm season grasses have been terminated by frost. This makes fall and winter grazing of Premium Graze an excellent balance of roughage from the grasses and protein from the brassicas.
Premium Graze is productive on a wide range of soil types including lighter soils. Being a warm season-based blend, it has excellent heat and drought tolerance. Premium Graze is commonly used as a replacement for our Optigraze mix if planting is delayed until early summer or if moisture outlook is poor.
