Legume and herb-rich mixtures
provide an abundance of productive
grazing for livestock whilst
providing habitat and food source
for invertebrates and pollinators,
supporting biodiversity.

Grass offer lots of reliable bulk forage with the added benefits of Nitrogen fixing ability of legumes, reduces the need for artificial fertilisers, as well as increasing the protein content which directly enhances DLWG or milk production.

Deep rooting herbs break through damaged soil structure providing
livestock with access to vital nutrients and minerals. Herbs act as a natural anthelmintic, reducing reliance on wormers.
