Paddock grass seed mix non-rye (with herbs)

This paddock grass seed mix has been developed due to some concerns that have grown up about ryegrass and horses.  These are as follows: -

    • Ryegrass varieties that have been developed for cattle are thought to have a high yield and it is thought that this is not always healthy for horses
    • There may be a link between high levels of sugar in ryegrass (some varieties) which is believed to increase the risk of laminitis

Because of the above many horse owners have switched to non ryegrass based mixtures.

This product can be supplied without herbs here.

Key Benefits:

  • Ryegrass-free for a dense, hard-wearing sward
  • No ryegrass means a reduction in the amount of sugars available to the grazing animal
  • Ideal for restricted intake diets, heavy grazers or older animals who do not require a rich diet and are prone to laminitis
  • Also suited to heavier, wetter and difficult soil types, unsuitable to ryegrass based seed mixes.

Additional Key Benefits of the Herb Mix:

  • Herbs grown in amongst grazing grass can provide better nutrition and vital trace elements where needed
