NutriFibre - Root to success

NutriFibre® is grass with a strong, impressive root system and nutritious, protein rich leaves. NutriFibre® offers an advantage regarding the four points outlined below on the grasses traditionally grown by dairy farmers.


Highest protein yield because NutriFibre® is high-yielding and rich in protein,
Climate resistent because NutriFibre® roots deeply,
Mineral efficient because NutriFibre® uses minerals from deeper layers in the soil,
Healthy cows because NutriFibre® provides effective fibre.


Grass seed mixes with NutriFibre® provide today’s farmers with optimal roughage. NutriFibre® technology offers farmers a solution for their farm management under a wide variety of conditions. A huge number of dairy farmers in Europe have already chosen the benefi ts of NutriFibre® and feed their cattle this grass to complete satisfaction.

The new grass technology

Left perennial ryegrass - Right NutriFibre®

The foundation of NutriFibre® is soft-leaf tall fescue, a development stemming from the Royal Barenbrug Group’s international breeding programme ‘Grass for highly productive dairy cattle’. NutriFibre® technology combines mineral efficiency, high protein production, digestible, effective fibre-rich cell walls and rooting intensity. The interaction of these individual properties has a mutually enhancing effect that results in exceptionally high quality silage. This gives the specific combination a value worth more than the sum of its parts. The new grass technology based on soft-leaf tall fescue has been extensively trialled in a diverse range of conditions, soil types and different farm management systems.
