MIXED HERBS

Agricultural grass species contain adequate levels of energy and protein, but they can be unreliable sources of trace elements, especially on mineral deficient soils. Sowing herbs can increase the availability of key nutrients and improve stock performance.

Plant in strips on headlands in grazing fields at sowing time, grazing stock will always find the herbs
