In forage, fibre digestibility is one of the most important quality measures. The main benefit of high fibre digestibility is an increase in milk and meat production.
1% increase in fibre digestibility (DNDF) =
+ 0.25 litres milk per cow per day
The importance of high fibre digestibility is supported by independent research that is well acknowledged throughout the world. Fibre digestibility is a key focus of the DLF global research platform.
Our top quality forages improve nutritional intake and increase milk or meat production. Choosing better varieties is the best way to maximize your output without increasing your input costs.
Dairy and beef herds perform better when their forage has high cell-wall fibre digestibility and the protein content is high. You get a higher dry matter intake and improved milk and meat production.
Certified seed of our proprietary varieties will improve establishment from every seed you sow and increase your chances of securing high yield of the desired quality.
“We like that DLF Pickseed promotes both high-end genetics like Triumph HVXRR alfalfa and high performing corn hybrids, as well as run their own research trials right here in Eastern Canada for producers.
We always aim for what is best for our cow's health; for us that means maximizing milk from forages. For a period of time while feeding HarvXtra Alfalfa, we were able to maintain over 100 lbs/milk/cow/day with 68-70% forages in our ration!”
