Cocksfoot

Cocksfoot is a summer active perennial grass that is largely suited to free draining soils. Cocksfoot image
Cocksfoot should be kept well grazed to maximize animal production and represents excellent value for money due to the large amount of seeds per kg and low sowing rates.  Some of the more recent varieties offer more palatable production and a host of improved traits.
