Stockford has incredible protein, test weight, forage yield, and standability–all key ingredients for a profitable forage program. Its resistances to various biotic and abiotic stress factors are strong, and when grown for seed, it’s easy to manage. Seedsmen like the high grain-yield when produced for seed, and growers tend to be impressed with the incredible comparative forage quality.
We’ve cooperated with groups conducting studies that tested “milk per acre–” a composite that considers forage yield and nutritional output, eventually even considering milk yield in terms of dairy efficiency. In those studies, Stockford came out on top.
