Tribal Perennial Ryegrass

Top Up Your Tonnage with Tribal Perennial Ryegrass

 

Tribal is a tetraploid forage type perennial ryegrass selected for forage yield, digestibility, and disease resistance. Its yield is characterized by season long persistence and aggressive regrowth delivering high productivity in multi-cut systems or aggressive grazing programs. Bred from European material, it has improved winterhardiness that is suitable for harsher climates and tolerance to dry conditions.

 

  • Strong Yield
  • Aggressive Regrowth
  • Digestibility
  • Stem and Crown Rust Resistance
  • Persistence in tough conditions

Lactal offers premier quality hay, pasture or silage. Its excellent digestibility and feed value – attributable to breeding efforts to reduce heading (setting seed through summer) – is suitable for all classes of livestock, especially those with high nutrient requirements.
