Generator Goat Pasture Seed Mixes:

Recently there has been interest in suitable pasture seed mix’s for milking goats and to lesser degree goats for fibre production.

Although, to date, there has been very little work on finding suitable pasture seed mixes ,specific to goats, we believe below mentioned blend’s will work well for your goats. These basic suggested mix’s can be further enhanced with the addition of some of the suggested “extras”.

Within these three mixes there will be one suitable for your farm regardless of your location within New Zealand.
