Winter crop for Loey’s Paddock

At the start of 2022, Catalyst Performance Agronomy took on the opportunity to partner with Richard Loe and grow a winter feed crop for a mob of his sheep. Situated adjacent to the Waimakariri Gorge, Loey’s paddock required a fast-maturing crop that would provide his animals with a high protein diet, and once initially grazed off, can then regrow into well-established pasture. Follow the story from drilling through to grazing to see how the crop performed.
