SF Pacer

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
re-growth.

Agronomic features:
  • Fast to first grazing
    Can provide earlier feed for livestock

  • Higher yielding
    Can deliver more liveweight gain or milk per hectare

  • Improved regrowth potential
    Provides more feed from later grazings

  • Reduced bolting
    Provides better quality longer
