Wholecrops and Mixes

Wholecrop has become established as an important alternative source of forage to livestock farmers. Wheat, triticale and barley can be grown, offering good energy levels and high dry matter content. Wholecrop cereals may be grown with or without peas and lupins or can be used as a cover crop to establish undersown grass leys and red clover mixes.

Wholecrop cereals are conserved in two basic forms

  • Fermented
  • Urea treated wholecrop

The benefits of wholecrop

  • Can be big baled or clamped
  • Grown and harvested with existing equipment on the farm
  • Is relatively early to be harvested
  • Allows increased production from home grown forage
  • Produces a high starch feed
  • Improves dry matter and fibre levels in the diet
  • Can improve milk protein levels
  • Useful means of establishing a ley
