Lactal is a tetraploid forage type perennial ryegrass selected for forage yield, digestibility, and good resistance to crown and stem rust. Its yield is characterized by aggressive regrowth and consistent second and third cut performance in hay applications. Bred from European material, it has strong winterhardiness that is suitable for harsher climates and excels in dry 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.
Preferred Growing Conditions
