There was a good turnout of Mayo farmers for a Teagasc reseeding demo on the farm Padraig Mellett at Kiltimagh Road, Balla.
Mr Mellett is a member of a Teagasc Suckler Discussion Group and has been regularly reseeding a portion of his farm in recent years.
Dermot Campion, Germinal Seeds, was at the demo to discuss the improved Top 5 Extend grass seed mixture. Top 5 Extend, the leading grass seed mixture from Germinal Seeds, now includes an exciting new grass variety AberGain.
Mr Campion explained that AberGain has (i) exceptional total yield (ii) superb spring growth (iii) excellent digestibility (highest on Irish Dept. of Agriculture Recommended List for all three).
He said that this variety has been specifically bred to meet the needs of the Irish grassland farmer for early spring and late autumn growth.
