Feed Barley Options
Feed barley prices are good again this season
If you need a 6 row smooth awn we had AB Tofield win our grain yield trial in 2021 and stood better vs AB Advantage and AB Cattlelac. Its a great option for forge or grain.
Sirish wins for standability and top end yields with good response to fertility and fungicides.
AAC Synergy 2 row malt barley is a great dryland option that has a large malt market, but many of our customers have been growing it for feed use as it is a good yielding barley.
AB Hauge 2 row feed barley has been a good fit for dry areas and compete with CDC Austenson well.
Sunray spring triticale has been around for a few years but it sill continues to show well in traials and sell well for us. Irrigation or dryland we have have excellent results for grain and forage. 90% of our sales are for forage use. Sunray Triticale
Our first grain corn trial of 2022 has been harvested at Barnwell, Alberta. The plot was seeded May 5, 2022 and harvested October 26 2022. Each plot was 12 rows wide at 22 inch spacing, for a total of 1.26 acres. Thunder seed product did well overall!
TH6278VT2P is a brand new 78 day corn at the 2225 CHU rating

Thanks to CP Farms
Harvest is mostly complete in the area, which means planning for the upcoming season has begun! When deciding what you want to grow for feed, a lot of factors can come into play. Quality, price, and of course overall tonnage. But available nutrients per MT does play a big part on your feed efficiency.
In the picture below is the manure content of a product from Thunder Seeds called TH4076 HDRR. It is a high digestible corn that is designed to be able to be broken down by the animal more efficiently than others, like in the picture beside it. If you are looking to get the most out of your feed, this could be a product for you!
Clean Seed On Hand
We recently cleaned our AB Tofield 6 row smooth awn barley, CDC Arborg oat, and ACC Awesome SWGP wheat.
AAC Chrome & CDC Lewochko yellow pea are clean, and 219-16 faba bean is clean.
We do have a little bit of carry over on some varieties also ready to go.
Spring Cereals Grain Yield Trials (& winter crop grain numbers)
We have some information compiled for the spring cereals grain yield trials complied below. Some information will come later once falling number ect. is done.
Barley, HRSW, SWSW, Durum, Hybrid Fall Rye, Winter Wheat were all in the trial.
The field experienced more lodging vs. normal, due to being on the edge of some storms and high fertility. Usually we like to see some lodging as it helps differentiate varieties. This year it was almost excessive causing some impact on the plots.
The plots also sat in the field a number of weeks longer than ideal due to the combines being busy on seed crops with no breaks like normal. This caused some rain on the mature crop, and bu weight to be lower, and we did look for seed or head drop but did not see much.
What is the best wheat variety and what is the best barley variety?
Wheatland VB, Hockley, and Hodge VB in top spots for CWRS, Succed VB & Stronghold topping the durum chart, Sadash VB on the SWSW, and Sirish on the barley charts. For barley this is pretty much opposite of last years results where the heat hurt some varieties more than others.
Fertility: 300 lbs of 46-0-0 spread and worked in, 92 lbs of 11-52-0 with the seed. Over 200 lbs of N available to crop as was on faba bean stubble. Teraxxa F4 Seed Treat. Normal in crop herbicides.
Manipulator PGR on all the plots at GS 32 average across the plots. (The barley would have been better to have Moddus) & applied FHB fungicide at heading.

Need a forage that grows well in different soil types? Alsike clover is relatively shallow rooted so it thrives in low-lying wet soils and can handle flooding for up to 6 weeks in early spring!
Alsike will grow in lower PH (Acidic) soils better vs other clovers.
We have focused on seed applied inoculants in the past few years but we also have a leading line up of granular inoculants available.
