Prosper™ is a leading brand in forage mixtures and is sold through a wide variety of dealerships in the Midwest. So what makes Prosper Plus with Peas Grain Forage Mixture so special? Planting a grain mix is proven to be superior to single-species crops. Learn about the benefits below:

Nutrition Balance
Oats, barley and wheat each have their own spectrum of nutritional value. By themselves they are excellent forage. Put them together and you have a broad-spectrum, balanced nutrition pallet comprised of all thee species.

Zero Nitrate Poisoning
Nitrate poisoning is a very real concern when feeding straight triticale or oats. By blending oats, barley and wheat the risk is greatly diminished or eliminated altogether.

Proven Palatability
With the added peas, cattlemen and ranchers report that livestock show a distinct preference for Prosper™ Plus with Peas. The peas add additional proteins and nutrients for healthy livestock.

Stands up so straight you can lay in it! Each combined characteristics of each species props the other one up keeping strong, upright stems.

Heavy in Grain=Heavy Cow=Better Beef
Prosper™ Plus with Peas is like our Prosper 3 Grain forage blend, but better. It has all the same grains with the added peas.  This results in heavy nutrients and protein with a high grain content. Heavy, full bales result in better beef production and heavier cows which equals happy cattlemen and even happier customers.
