Takes the pressure and keeps on producing

We’re proud to offer the most recent commercially available ryegrass varieties from the outstanding University of Florida ryegrass breeding program. Why? Because these high-yield, rust- and disease-resistant tetraploid varieties deliver the proven results you need.

Prine is a big yielding, late-maturing, disease resistant, tetraploid ryegrass. Perfect for winter grazing pastures in the southeast US, Prine performs well in university yield trials, as well as grazing studies. Prine yields high quality, winter forage for livestock, establishes easily, and can be grazed aggressively.

For your investment, there is no better combination of quality and yield. Help your pasture perform at its prime—only with Prine.

  1. Feed And Forage Composition

Many of the numerous terms used in describing these components are not commonly used by the general public, which naturally [...]

    Only a relatively small percentage of livestock producers regularly test their hay or other stored feed. Some are probably just not aware of, or not well informed about, this service. Unfortunately, many others know about it but apparently don’t consider it important enough to take the time and expend the [...]

  3. Stockpiling Warm Season Grasses

    Less-than-optimum weather conditions, as well as the cost of fertilizer, fuel, and other production inputs are factors that often make it difficult for livestock producers to make a profit.  Providing  nutrition during times when pasture is not available is one of the costliest aspects of producing livestock, so it makes [...]


    A livestock producer learns a lot about a pasture over time by managing it, but that is not the only way to obtain information about a given field. Often, a great deal can be gained from simple observation, because various plants are more likely to become established and thrive under [...]


    Providing nutrition when little or no pasture forage is available constitutes the single largest expense associated with most livestock operations. In most cases, hay is the most logical type of stored feed to use. Generally, the less hay required, the greater the cost effectiveness of an operation, and how hay [...]
