Highland Specialty Grains has a robust breeding program which develops new and improved varieties of barley for forage. We have varieties that are for general licensing by anybody in our network of seed dealers. We also work with associates to develop varieties specifically for their customers.

Our portfolio of forage varieties includes ‘Stockford’, which is a two-row hooded forage barley. Stockford has been a popular choice for many years. One of our new varieties for general release is ‘Vaquero’. Like Stockford, it is a 2-row hooded variety. Vaquero is a few inches taller than Stockford with significantly less lodging. Redrock is another new variety that is an excellent forage barley. Redrock is available only through Nutrien Ag Solutions. Eureka, Rampage and Pronto are varieties that are available through Barkley Seed Company and its licensees.
