Our understanding of livestock nutritional needs has lead to the development of Total Ration Solutions - a product and information program designed to meet energy, digestibility and protein needs through the lifecycle of your herd investment.

PRODUCE MORE MILK AND MEAT PER ACRE WITH PRIDE SEEDS

As a dairy farmer today your goal is focused on using high quality feed to produce more milk from the feed grown on your farm.  As a beef producer the goal is similar, to produce more meat per acre from the feed produced and fed.

Total Ration Solutions is a product and information program that features top performing Effective Digestible Fibre (EDF) hybrids, Effective Dual Purpose (EDP) hybrids, alfalfa varieties and forage mixtues designed to meet energy, digestibility and protein needs.

CHOOSING A SILAGE HYBRID; Beauty Is More Than Skin Deep

Consider yield, silage quality and your feeding goals when selecting silage hybrids.  We recommend balancing your feed program for both energy and digestibility, based on selecting PRIDE hybrids designated as either Effective Digestible Fibre (EDF) hybrids or Effective Dual Purpose (EDP) hybrids.

Effective Digestible Fibre (EDF) Hybrids hybrids provide high digestiblity and palatability for improved feeding efficiency.  These hybrids are silage specific - designed for silage efficiency and not recommended for grain production.

Effective Dual Purpose (EDP) Hybrids hybrids offer superior energy and silage quality on a consistent basis and the flexibility to use as a grain hybrid depending on your operational needs.

IT'S RESULTS THAT COUNT

To not only understand but to ensure we are meeting your needs through Total Ration Solutions, PRIDE Seeds established one of the largest on-farm silage testing programs in Canada to evaluate the whole plant yield and feed quality of PRIDE silage hybrids.

At each location, hybrids are harvested from field scale trials measuring a minimum 1/3 of an acre.  Representative samples are then sent immediately to an accredited independent lab to measure quality factors such as energy, crude protein, acid detergent fibre (ADF), neutral detergent fibre (NDF), total digestible nutrients (TDN) and milk (lbs/acre).  The analysis provides a complete picture of the silage quality produced.
