- Stock farmers can increase their grazing profits significantly by planting SlickTrit, which can be planted earlier than wheat, and grazed three weeks longer.
- SlickTrit can produce 30% more beef per acre than wheat. It does not have the insect and disease problems of wheat. Many growers are planting one third of their small grain acres to triticale, and 2/3rds to wheat. They graze the triticale first, switch to wheat for the Winter, and move back to the triticale when the wheat reaches hollow stem.
- This allows for a wheat grain crop, and gives you flexibility with your grazing program. It also allows you to grow a hay crop without tying up any acres during the Summer.
