Seasonal growth

Viscount is late heading (+9 days) with excellent early spring growth, coinciding with late calving or lambing when feed is most valuable. 

 

 

Feed quality

Viscount provides high quality very palatable feed, with reduced aftermath heading and improved rust tolerance. It is more upright for ease of harvest, allowing good clover content and boosting animal performance.

 

NEA4 Endophyte

Viscount comes with NEA4 endophyte, which improves its persistence through better ASW, black beetle and root aphid control. Viscount NEA4 provides excellent animal performance with a very low risk of animal health problems such as ryegrass staggers.
