Have you ever spent long nights awake thinking about the role of the different types of ryegrasses?
Or perhaps you pass your time on the tractor questioning Ecotain’s® ability to reduce nitrate leaching?
If so you may want to check in with your health care professional, but in the meantime, Al and Juddy are here to help explain the technical, practical, and sometimes humorous implications of forages and animal systems that keep New Zealand farmers leading the world.
Ever wondered how endophytes benefit the grass in which they live or how they affect the animals grazing on them?

Endophytes are a vital tool in many farmers' toolboxes, so make sure to listen in!
