We can arrange virtually any mix of seed for horses and cattle. The standard horse paddock blend of seed is Rhodes Grass, Jarra Grass, Gatton Panic, Couch, Stylo and Millet. This can be ordered in any size you require.
We can order a Sports Oval Seed Mix that is perfect for Footy fields and any other sports oval. This mix comprises of 1/3 Millet, 1/3 Green Couch and 1/3 Bahia. The Millet will germinate first, giving a light coverage followed by the Couch. The Bahia eventually takes over the area leaving an attractive, hardwearing and sturdy field. Order this seed by the kilo. This mix is spread heavily at a rate of 50 to 75 kg per hectare. An average field of about 2500 square metres would require about 20 kg.
