Mixes & Forage

LAKER CLASSIC OATS AND PEAS MIX

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.

VISTA CLASSIC OATS AND PEAS MIX

A very well known forage product, Red Robin Seeds Vista and Badger Peas have been a hot selling item for many years. The mixture gives growers a high quality good yielding forage.

BARLEY AND PEAS MIX

This mix gives growers a high tonnage, high protein forage product.

TRITICALE AND PEAS MIX

This mix can generate slightly higher protein levels than pea and oat mixes due to the thicker leaves that triticale produces.

PEAS

4010 peas work well in mixtures with small grains to make a highly palatable forage.

TRITICALE

A versatile small grain that works well for grazing, silage, or baling. Triticale is a favorite for mixing with peas.
