Growth Results

It's been 10 years since I planted Ladino Clover. My past experience was in PA with a "deer head" brand and that result was poor. However this new planting has been terrific on my NY land. I used a generic brown bag version of Regal Graze Ladino Clover and I couldn't be happier with the results. I had quick germination and steady, lush growth that lasted all the way until the late season.

Activity Results

Activity was incredible. And this was shocking because this plot is less than 100 acres from our camp and the hub of human activity on the property. I had deer in there every day, but that also included our #1 and #2 bucks. In fact, trail cam pics showed both of my top bucks feeding in the plot while we were sleeping in the camper 100 yards away. We also had great turkey activity and even a fair bit of bear activity as well.


This was our most popular plot even though it was right next to our camp. Deer were drawn to it like crack-heads. The ladino kept pace with the grazing. I will be curious to see how well the plot comes up in 2015 since this variety of Clover is a perrenial. Extremely impressive at a very good price.
