Setting the pace
SF Pacer has been bred as a replacement for Pasja by its plant breeder. It was selected from four breeder’s lines bred and evaluated for increased yield, improved re-growth and reduced bolting between grazings.
In Australian and New Zealand trials it has shown rapid establishment, fast growth to first grazing and outstanding
Fast to first grazing
Can provide earlier feed for livestock
Can deliver more liveweight gain or milk per hectare
Improved regrowth potential
Provides more feed from later grazings
Provides better quality longer
Forage EBV’s – compared to industry standards*

*Relative yields based on four replicated Australian trials: Gundagai, Macarthur, Wamnambool and Caramut 2006-2009.
*Meat value estimated using 70% utilisation of feed and $2.50/kg liveweight, and milk value estimated using 80% of feed and 40c/litre milk.
