Custom Forage Solutions
At Legacy Seeds, we understand the importance of high quality nutrition and how it leads directly to milk production for your dairy herd. Every farm has unique needs when it comes to feed, which is why we continuously research and test our hybrids’ performance. This ensures that you can expect the highest nutritional quality and performance from our seeds.
Ration Choice Corn
Legacy Seeds’ Ration Choice® corn is designed for optimal herd health and profitability for your operation. Our hybrids are designed to precisely meet the needs of dairy and livestock, depending on the unique factors of your farm. Our silage corn keeps animal performance and acre flexibility in mind. If you are looking to obtain more milk per ton and more milk per acre, look no further than Ration Choice®.
You also have the flexbility to choose which silage system works best for your farm, from high-yielding and high-forage-quality Flexible Acre (FA) varieties to high-yielding Leafy (LFY) silage varieties. Both options have been bred and tested fo high starch, fiber and sugar digestibility and excellent yield, but perform differently for your herd depending on the ratio of corn to alfalfa in your rations.
Our Alfalfa breeding program has been working to improve alfalfa genetics for over 90 years. We use everything we’ve learned over the years about alfalfa to continuously innovate and deliver today’s top genetics. We are one of only four U.S. alfalfa breeding programs, which makes us unique experts in the area.
Alfalfa is an incredible source of nutrition for cattle, and makes an efficient addition to your forage. Legacy Seeds alfalfa provides top yields, outstanding persistence, and high quality. Our team works with agronomists and nutritionists to help you select the right hybrids for your herd, depending on the specific conditions you need to deal with.
The Research and Learning Center, which houses our alfalfa breeding program, is located in Waupaca, WI. We’d love for you to stop by any time for a tour of the facilities and learn what goes in to producing our high quality seed.
Triticale was originally developed by crossing wheat and rye. Triticale is a hardy crop with prolific growth and adaptation to various environmental conditions. It combines the hardiness and nutrient-use efficiency of rye and high grain yield and nutritional qualities of wheat. Improved triticale cultivars produce greater biomass and grain yield than traditional forage wheat. This makes triticale a viable alternative crop especially in nutrient-deficient environments with various biotic and abiotic stress factors. TriCal® Superior Forage offers industry leading triticale for your forage needs.
