Cold-grazer Rye(left) compared to common rye (right)

Cold Grazer

  • A winter annual grain that is cross pollinated between two varieties. So much more production it is your only choice for pasture. Fills the winter void and replaces expensive haying operations

Advantages

  • Grows 12°F colder than Wheat, common Rye, or Ryegrass.
  • Wheat stops growing at 52°F
    soil temperature, Coldgrazer Rye continues to grow down to 40°F soil temperature.
  • Grows 30 days longer into the fall and starts growing 30 days earlier in the spring. Matures earlier than wheat, making it ideal for earlier double cropping (Oats in spring)
  • Produces a much Higher Forage Yield than Wheat, common Rye, or Ryegrass.
  • Higher protein test than wheat.

Recommendations

  • The seed production fields are alternatively sown with multiple varieties of rye for cross pollination, thus considered a strain cross. Wheat does not cross-pollinate.
  • Plant 75 – 100 lbs. per acre.
  • Planting depth: 1-½” – 2”
  • Plant from September 1 through November 15.
  • Split fertilizer application recommended. ½ in fall, ½ in spring.
  • The labor costs are the same any time you go across a fi eld with a no-till drill planting grass or clover, so you might as well get the extra pasture by adding the Cold-Grazer.
