Barmidi is the only true grazing-type timothy variety available on the market. It’s adopted to the only recommended list in Europe where special grazing timothy’s are rated: The Netherlands. Barmidi is not the highest yielding timothy, but it shows excellent persistency and ground cover under frequent defoliation.
From grazing trials can be seen that cows prefer fresh timothy above all other grass species. This is due to its soft leaf texture. The picture below is taken from a grazing farm, where one stripe of Barmidi was sown in a perennial ryegrass sward. Though heavily grazed, Barmidi shows excellent ground cover and persistency.
