Reseeding levels in Ireland are low ranging from 250,000 acres to 320,000 acres annually; in general approximately 2pc of our annual grassland area is reseeded.

As grass is our main feed during the main grazing season, and the primary source of winter forage from grass silage, the low level of reseeding must be addressed.
