At Heritage Seeds we believe in ‘powering productivity’ for our farmers by offering the highest quality pastures and forages for their livestock.
We work with a range of local and international breeding organisations to source a selection of varieties for local testing. We then invest more than $1 million each year to test them extensively at our Research farm in Howlong and a number of other locations across the country. We then only chose those varieties that we know will deliver improved performance and enhanced productivity.
