We specialize in small grain seed including oats, barley, wheat, rye, triticale, and pea mixes.
Antigo is named after our home-town location.
Scale tipping test weights with extraordinary yield!
Test weights averaging 39-41lbs in the UW trials. Average plant heights have been 35-38 inches during four years of trials in Wisconsin. It has been moderately resistant to crown rust and Barley Yellow Dwarf Virus (BYDV).
Hayden has excellent yields and test weights. We have seen yields over 100 bu/ac and test weights of 38-41 lbs! Resistance to crown rust is good and resistance to BYDV is very good. Plant height is around 40 inches making it one of our tallest oat varieties.
Reins is an early oat with excellent yields and test weights. Reins stays relatively short so it resists lodging well. We have seen yields well over 100 bu/ac and test weights up to 41 lbs/bu! Disease resistance is good, but a fungicide is recommended to avoid crown/leaf rust.
Can produce great yields
in the absence of leaf rust
Maturity: Mid Season
Ogle is a very well known variety that has been around for decades. It’s a mid-season oat that shows good yields as long as it avoids leaf rust which it is susceptible to. Though newer genetics from varieties such as Esker have surpassed Ogle in yielding ability and disease tolerance, Ogle is still overall a good variety.
Consistently high yielding
Great disease resistance
Kewaunee is a great grain and forage barley. It’s a six rowed smooth-awned variety that consistently shows high yields, good test weight, and good disease resistance.
This is an all new mix that we’re excited to offer to customers. This mix takes our new late maturing Laker oats and pairs it with an Arvika pea that allows for a great match to produce excellent forage yield and quality. Unlike other pea & oat mixes that use early to mid season varieties, this mix uses the late maturity of Laker oats which allows the growers to harvest when the oats are at mid to late boot stage – which gives the best feed quality oats can give you while also taking the peas off when they’re budding, giving them the highest protein levels you can get.
This mix gives growers a high tonnage, high protein forage product.
This mix can generate slightly higher protein levels than pea and oat mixes due to the thicker leaves that triticale produces.
4010 peas work well in mixtures with small grains to make a highly palatable forage.
A versatile small grain that works well for grazing, silage, or baling. Triticale is a favorite for mixing with peas.
A very popular and versatile choice for cover crop, forage, or grain production. Rye is very cold tolerant and can be seeded late in fall.
A solid choice for fall planting. It can be used as a forage or hay crop. It produces more biomass than winter wheat or barley.
Oats can be used as a forage or cover crop.
