Custom Blends

At BrettYoung we understand that no two fields are the same. Each piece of land has its own unique combination of soil type, topography and annual precipitation. Although we thoughtfully create the stock blends to achieve most production goals, in some instances a forage blend should be custom-built to fit your needs if they are not met by a stock blend. 

We endeavour to build, create and ship custom blends in 48 hours or less, depending on product availability. 

Not sure what forage species and varieties are best suited to your operation? Reach out to your area Regional Account Manager for help building a blend recommendation.  More information on the characteristics of the various species and varieties can be found in the alfalfa, legumes and grasses sections of this site.
