What is an Herbal Ley?
An Herbal Ley is a foraging mix comprised of multiple grasses, herbs and clovers. It should produce a well-balanced forage that reduces fertilizer inputs and provide increased levels of vitamins and minerals to livestock. Additionally, it should build and restore soil fertility. The higher initial cost of Herbal Leys are offset by improved animal performance, reduced fertilizer inputs and reduced supplementary feed input.
