“Nick, one of the Beyersbergen Brothers, says “Pickseed varieties have treated us well over the years, you cannot stop it from growing and it never disappoints!” John and Marius agree that since they are not milking cows anymore they grow a dual purpose corn. Currently the varieties they grow are PS 2792VT2P RIB and PS 2793GSX RIB. “These varieties give us tons of high energy silage to grow Holstein heifers and beef cattle. As well as dependable yields for grain corn to sell as a cash crop.””

“I have been a Pickseed customer for 22 years. I have always found Pickseed to provide a reliable product. Although over the years I have not exclusively grown Pickseed for every field, it always remained one of the top performing brands on our farm for corn and forages. Perhaps more importantly, Pickseed appears to listen to their customers and continue to provide a variety of seed options including non-genetically modified hybrids.”

“Vision alfalfa give excellent regrowth! It works for haylage, as well as dry hay due to its fine stem – so it is dual purpose. Because of the fast regrowth, I can count on Vision to supply three cuts when newly seeded and four cuts a year once it’s established. Pickseed’s Vision alfalfa is a perfect fit for my management style and operation.”
