Barnyard Supply offering great farms and ranches start with great pastures. Great pasture grass fed beef, dairy, sheep, and deer grass begin with great pasture grass seed. SucraSEED™ is the only pasture grass seed mix made from High-Sugar Grass (HSG), the same perennial rye grass that have been improving pasture grass fed beef and livestock production in Europe and New Zealand for more than a decade. High Sugar Grasses, found exclusively in the SucraSEED mixes, were developed for farmers wanting to get the most from their pasture grass seed. The pasture grass seed high sugar reserves make lush, thick pastures grasses that withstand hot, dry summers and biting, cold winters. It also gives them the extra energy to re-grow quickly after grazing and to crowd out weeds. Most importantly, though, HSGs are proven to increase livestock yields. Thats more milk, beefier cattle and larger sheep, goats and deer.
When grazed on ordinary rye grass fed beef, livestock cattle, dairy cows, sheep and deer convert only about 20% of the available pasture grass protein into milk and meat. The rest passes unused (along with nitrogen) in feces and urine. This low conversion rate is both inefficient and detrimental to the environment. SucraSEED improves the conversion rate of rye grass proteins, allowing cattle, cows, deer, and sheep to add greater body mass and produce more milk while reducing the amount of waste nitrogen passed into the land (up to 24%). The secret of SucraSEED's pasture grass seed success lies in the quantity of water soluble carbohydrates (sugars) in the rye grass. Rumen microbes use energy from sugars to convert rye grass protein into milk and meat. Because SucraSEED High Sugar Pasture Grasses contain significantly higher levels of water soluble carbohydrates (up to 50%) than ordinary pasture grasses, livestock grazed on SucraSEED are able to convert protein much more efficiently.
