Most Clovers work best in a blend with grasses such as Timothy and Orchardgrass and provide a highly palatable crop. Clovers are very productive but are relatively short-lived and can be used for hay, haylage or in a pasture mix although they can be difficult to dry for hay. It is quite easy to establish clover.
Birdsfoot trefoil is a long-lived perennial. It is a leafy legume with fine stems and produces a high quality forage. It works well with grass and can be used for hay or pasture. Trefoil does well in wetter areas where alfalfa may not persist. MAPLESEED carries a couple of improved varieties of Birdsfoot Trefoil which are suited to hay or pasture use.
