Red Clover - Pendomer
This is a Red Clover and grass crop which will be made into silage and put with the rest of the fermenting grass in the silage clamp for winter feed.
Red Clover is high in protein as a foodstuff but must be fed carefully to livestock as they suffer from bloat if eaten fresh and in large quantities. The nitrogen from the root nodules will be beneficial to the soil for up to three years after the crop has been ploughed up in rotation and so the farmer will need to apply less nitrogen fertiliser in this field during that time - if at all.
