Red clover is a tap rooted short lived (2-5 years) perennial clover that has high feed value & nutritional qualities ideal for moderate stocking rates, long summer grazing rotations & making hay for finishing lambs, cattle or milking cows. With good drought tolerance, Red Clover can boost late spring and summer growth as well as feed quality. It is suited to free draining soils in rainfall areas above 600mm per annum.

- High feed value
- Ideal for moderate stocking rates, long summer grazing rotations & making hay
- Good drought tolerance
- Late spring and summer growth
Reaper Red Clover is a high yielding, large leafed, semi-erect growing diploid red clover which is suitable for grazing and for hay and silage.
Reaper is a very palatable variety, with fine stems which are less stalky than traditional red clovers and is low in oestrogen levels. It has good disease resistance and strong persistence.
Astred Red Clover has superior persistence and production even under sheep grazing. Astred has been extensively trialled in many parts of Australia and consistently performed well. Suited to free draining soils, it makes high quality hay and is ideal for finishing lambs, cattle and dairy cows.
USA RED CLOVER
A general-purpose spring producer mainly suited to hay production, USA Red has high oestrogen levels and persists only for 1–2 years. Demonstrating an upright growth habit, it is broadly adaptable to most conditions as an annual clover, though generally requires highly fertile deep soils.
