Triticale

Forage Use: Grazing Dairy, Beef, and Haylage

The Trical® breeding program has been developed over the last 30 years with a focus on quality. The triticale varieties Byron Seeds have selected are the best in the industry with a research and breeding program to back them. These varieties have been tested extensively to ensure that we have the highest fiber digestibility possible while still maintaining maximum yield. We have selected these varieties because we understand that high quality forage is imperative to stay competitive in the dairy/beef industry.

Management

Triticale can be utilized in grazing or haylage operation. It has a wider window of harvest then most cereal grains allowing it to be more versatile in inclement weather while maintaining excellent quality. When cutting, lay it in a wide swath to get maximum drying. If proper fertility is applied, triticale will yield up to 2.5 tons of DM/A (6 tons of high quality feed).

Establishment

Seeding rates are 100 to 120 lbs per acre. Seed should be placed 1/2 to 3/4 inch in a firm seedbed. In the case of no-till make certain the existing vegetation is properly killed.
