2. Horses, that are fed low in protein:
Our Pre Alpin Saatgut and our Pferdeweide Sensitiv will keep for up to 6 years when stored under proper conditions (dark, dry, cool, airtight), as grasses are light germinators.
Yes, our seeds are for perennial plants. Resowing every 6 years is sufficient with proper maintenance and conditions.
Our seed mix is designed to be generally suitable for all types of soils. That said, grass seeds germinate better on sandy-loamy, loose soils than on heavy, loamy, compacted soils. For difficult or unfavourable soil conditions, we recommend using our Pre Alpin Saatgut seed mix.
Grass seeds should be sown either in spring or autumn. It's important that the soil is warm and damp and that no nightly frosts are expected. From experience, we say that the best months for sowing are March/April and October.
Sow seeds 1 cm below the surface of the soil.
For a new seeding, use 30 kg per hectare of our Pre Alpin Saatgut or 40 kg per hectare of our Pferdeweide Sensitiv.
If reseeding, used 10–20 kg per hectare depending on existing vegetation.
For reseeding with our Kräutermix, use about 1–2 kg per hectare.
Do not use Kräutermix for complete or new seeding!
If more than 50% of the soil is either bare or covered with weeds, aim for a completely new seeding.
Before new seeding, it is best to do a soil test to learn your soil's nutrient composition. However, proper fertilisation is also a basic element in maintaining a functioning pasture.
Perennial ryegrass is an extremely hardy, high-yield, low grass with a high nutritional value. It is characterised by a dense turf, good tread resistance and good regrowth. Perennial ryegrass is indispensable for maintaining dense turf on difficult, stressed, or weedy sites.
The use of which seed mix depends on the horses grazing the site and the prevailing soil conditions.
In general, we recommend the use of our Pre Alpin Saatgut for difficult soil conditions (dry, compacted, weedy).
Pferdeweide Sensitiv has a composition that is well suited for easy doers and horses with sensitive metabolisms.
Kräutermix lets you increase your pasture's species diversity.
Our Wiesenbussi treats make great rewards and can be given out several times daily.

Yes, absolutely. Wölbchenbussi treats are low in starch and sugar, so they are suitable for horses with metabolic disorders.
Honey is the last ingredient listed and is present only in very small amounts. Therefore, Wiesenbussi are suitable for EMS/Cushing's horses in moderate quantities.
