A profitable farm business starts with more milk from dairy herds, and more meat from beef herds and sheep. With grass grown from our seed we help you gain a more profitable farm business.
It is all about science, rigorous testing and optimal management. Our intensive worldwide breeding and product development programme produces improved grasses and more efficient grassland-management techniques. Wherever you farm, there is a seed that is ideal for your soil and climate – a seed that increases your yields and reduces your production costs.
In short, you get more milk (or meat) with DLF.

High performing varieties give you more forage energy and protein for your livestock. If you want to optimise grassland production for greater self-sufficiency and become less reliant on bought-in feed and volatile forage price, you have advantages choosing seed from DLF.
Dairy and beef herds perform better when their forage is highly digestible and the protein content is high. Our top quality grasses improve nutritional intake and boost milk or meat yields. It is the surest way to maximise output without increasing input costs.
Every farm is different. Finding the right grass for your soil, climate, and livestock should not be a matter of trial and error. In our seed catalogue, there is a grass mix that is right for you and we will be glad to help you find it.

The team in our fields and labs is on your side. While you are working to achieve the best milk or meat yields through efficient farm management, we are working equally hard to develop the next generation of robust, high-yielding grass varieties.
Each year we test several thousand results of new crosses. In 2014, we streamlined the process by integrating Genome Wide Selection (GWS) into our breeding programme. GWS technology speeds up the detection of crosses with a high genetic potential for improvements in yield, quality, disease-resistance, or stress-tolerance. It helps us give you better seed, faster.
