Seeds forged for forage
Wherever and whenever you need a small grain forage, RAM Forage Oats were created just for that.
RAM Oats establish quickly so your pasture is ready for grazing, sooner. Plant as early as September or October for great, early fall forage.
Superior cold toleranance provides grains that go through the Winter and into late Spring. Extend the season even longer by planting Prine Tetraploid Annual Ryegrass, for cold-season forage that lasts till May.
RAM Forage Oats were bred at LSU and selected for their outstanding forage characteristics, including rust resistance. Yields of up to 12,000 lbs. of quality forage dry matter have been found in trials throughout the South.
