Ovaflow is adapted to similar environments to Goulburn, Karridale and Denmark with the ability to regenerate dense clover pasture in autumn, following opening season rains. It produces winter growth when feed requirements are at their highest. This produces pastures with greater clover dominance in early winter. Ovaflow is much more erect, particularly in winter and is a prolific seed producer, making Ovaflow a very persistent sub clover. Ovaflow has superior spring growth giving higher season long herbage production and outstanding hay production, good levels of hard seededness for better persistence and a highly nutritious feed. Ovaflow is well suited to intensive pasture grazing operations with its ability to regenerate after hard grazing, long term persistence and Ovaflow’s ability to produce high dry matter yields for grazing or fodder conservation in medium to high rainfall areas. Ovaflow hasc low levels of formononetin, the oestrogen associated with fertility problems in grazing stock associated with other varieties.
