The science is building
Recently I was visiting one of our clients who wanted to understand why he was getting such an increase in animal performance from his regen pastures. As we stood in the diverse species pasture, the conversation moved to: - you can't see it, so test it, don't guess it.
We took a herbage sample from the block that the cattle were about to enter. As we walked back toward our vehicle, there was an uncultivated area of the original ryegrass clover pasture. I suggested that we do a test on the original pasture to compare and evaluate the differences between the two. Once tested, we can now see why his animals perform so much better on regen pastures.
Below is a summary of the key differences between the Regen and Ryegrass/clover pastures samples, and they are mind-blowing.
