Why Reseed?

Reseeding has many advantages and should be considered as essential for any livestock farmer. There are many benefits of reseeding grassland as can be seen from the list below:

  • Increased sward productivity (15 – 25%).  Difference between old and new swards is 3t DM/ha and this enables stocking density to be increased.
  • New grass varieties have excellent spring & autumn growth helping to extend the grazing season.
  • Much improved grass quality and hence feeding value.  Moorepark have found that reseeded swards give typically 8% higher milk output per hectare.
  • Helps to increase the number of grazing days.
  • Improved regrowth following grazing/cutting.
  • More Nitrogen responsive swards (+5kg DM/kg N).
  • Reduced overall silage requirement.  Also the silage that is made is of better quality & easier to preserve.
  • Eliminate old non-productive paddocks/fields & weed infested paddocks.
  • Increasing the productive capacity of the grazing platform.
