Ryegrass

Below is a picture of 18 acres of  a mixture of Ryegrass, Hairy Vetch, and Whistler Winter Peas. The second picture is a close-up to try and show the hairy vetch and peas growing in the ryegrass. The bottom picture  is of our goats eating from  a round bale of the same type of ryegrass mixture. We have had mixed success with the baled ryegrass. Sometimes the goats have eaten it and then other times, they have ignored it. They like the ryegrass in the pasture and it grows thick and tall. It can also reseed itself if it is not cut before it makes a head.
