An attempt has been made to evaluate the role of seven ‘ultra-simple’ seeds mixtures in the production of pasture during the grazing season. The individual value of each mixture is assessed and its period of production described.

Pasture output was measured in dry matter and protein yields along with live-weight gains obtained with fattening cattle.
