Description

MacBeth Meadow Brome is used for pasture, hay and haylage.  It is highly palatable to all classes of livestock and wildlife.  MacBeth is also used in the northern states for pasture in an intensive rotational grazing system.  MacBeth can also be used as a companion for alfalfa and for wildlife food plots.

Suggested seeding rates:  A clean, firm, weed-free seedbed is recommended. Meadow brome does not flow uniformly through a drill unless it is diluted with rice hulls or other diluents. A seeding rate of 10 pounds per acre is recommended, if broadcasting, seed at 20 pounds per acre.  Plant 3 to 4 pounds per acre with alfalfa.

Approx. seeds/lb.:  93,000

Seeding depth:  Drill 1/4″ deep in a firm seedbed.  Do not plant too deep.  Seed size is large.

Preferred soils:  Well-drained soils with higher fertility in the Midwest and Northeastern parts of the U.S.

Management suggestions:  Meadow brome establishes roots very slowly and plants may be severely damaged by grazing too soon. The plants may be severely damaged or pulled out by overgrazing especially in the seedling year due to poorly rooted seedlings. Harvesting for hay during the establishment year will be most beneficial to eliminate grazing damage. Do not graze in the spring until forage is 8 to 12 inches high and remove animals from pasture when 3 to 4 inch stubble height remains. A 3 to 4 week rest period between grazing is recommended. This plant responds well to rotational grazing systems. To maintain long-lived stands, the grass should be allowed to periodically mature and produce seed for continuation of the stand. Apply fertilizer based on soil tests.
