Aber HSG 4 Dairy System is a mixture for milk producers who are aiming for one or two high-quality silage cuts followed by the best possible rotational grazing.

First cut will be mid-to-late May, with the option of a second cut approximately 4–5 weeks later, or alternatively commence rotational grazing. The Aber HSG varieties selected for this mixture significantly out-perform other grasses for grazing quality and grazing yields. This year Aber HSG 4 is further improved by the introduction of AberWolf HSG, the stand-out grass on the latest UK Recommended Lists.
