Average yearly rainfall: 500-560 mm
Total farm acreage: 1070 ha, 50 ha of permanent pasture and ley farming
Dairy cows: 380 cows (milk performance: 11.788 kg/cow and year (3,31 % crude protein, 3,92 %
fat), 450 yearling cows
COUNTRY-mixture: COUNTRY 2316 field forage with clover, annual and COUNTRY 2310 dry areas
“ In the past silage maize and alfalfa were the most important crops for the basic ration of our
farm. But we got more and more problems with the alfalfa, already in the first cut dandelion spread
over the whole field. So we had to plough the fields. To have enough forage for the current year,
we have already sown in early June COUNTRY 2316 field forage with Persian clover. We harvested
three cuts. The annual ryegrass was responsible for the high yield of this mixture, the Persian
clover increased the protein content of the silage.
In addition we renewed our permanent pasture bit by bit with COUNTRY 2310 for dry areas. This
mixture is particularly suitable for intensive cutting on dry sites such as ours. We get, as well
as with COUNTRY 2053, not only higher yields, but again through the clover a higher protein content
in the silage. With this experience, I recommend both mixtures to other farmers."

fat), 160 yearling cows
COUNTRY-mixture: COUNTRY 2319 field forage, without clover, 1-2 years
“Our grass silage is produced on ley fields, not produced on permanent pasture. Limited
production acreage, that is our main problem, therefore we need very high yields in ley farming.
This is the main reason why we grow COUNTRY 2319 field forage without clover, 1-2 years. The
combination of Italian and hybrid ryegrass provides high yields, especially in the first year of
We rely on this mixture, even if we have problems with drought. In years with
good rainfall, we got up to six cuts. But even in dry years, we have always been satisfied with
COUNTRY 2319. This works so well that even my neighbors asked me, which grassland mixture I use.
Bit by bit they switch to COUNTRY 2319.
Innovations are part of my farm, so I bought in 2008 as the first Polish farmer
a milking robot. COUNTRY also belongs to these innovations."
