Growers often question the value of reseeding, however reseeding should always be seen as an investment rather than a cost.
Good quality grazed grass is the cheapest feed for ruminants. Renewing pastures regularly is important to maximise productivity and maintain feed quality. Below are the yields in tonnes of dry matter/acre of an old sward compared with the first year of a new ley.
The yield increase is huge and easily pays for the reseed and will lead to a significant return on investment.
Reseeding doesn't just bring grazing benefits, it will also lead to:
- Improved quality
- Increased palatability and digestibility
- Improved DM intakes
- Increased seasonal growth
- Increased animal performance
- Increased stocking rates
- Increased disease resistance
- Improved response to N fertiliser
- All of these factors result in increased farm productivity
