Financial Rewards

  • Cows fed a High Sugar Grass diet have shown increases of up to 262 gallons more milk per cow annually.
  • Increased intake from grazing and extremely high forage yields means less reliance on higher-cost seed and food sources like corn.
  • Input costs are lower due to savings on herbicides and the reduced need for minerals, additives or lower quality (lignified) forage.
  • Extra forage yields can extend the grazing season and reduce winter feed costs.

Farmer Talk

"Our latest planting in a field that is usually a four feeding field has been extended to a five feeding field.  When the cows go into that field, they have been up in milk every time this grazing season."

Jon Banson, Double J Jerseys, Monmouth Oregon
