A must-have for every livestock farmer

The grass seed mixture Vital has so many benefits that it is an absolute must-have for every dairy farmer. Vital with NutriFibre® technology uses minerals very efficiently and produces 30% more grass with excellent nutritional value. Thanks to its long root system, it is excellent at withstanding extreme drought or wet weather conditions. Additionally, it is a crop rich in structure that cows must chew well. The extra saliva production prevents rumen acidosis.

 

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

 

NutriFibre®:

 

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 benefits of NutriFibre® and feed their cattle this grass to complete satisfaction.

 

NutriFibre® is the new grass technology for silage.

The foundation of NutriFibre® is soft-leaf tall fescue, a development descending 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.
