Do you believe there is any difference in the two? I was at a QDMA event in NY a while back and heard a guy ask someone from QDMA that question. The response was there is a difference between them. I listened to them talk about lignin content in different types of seed. Was kinda explained that most co op seed if of the variety meant for livestock and if you thought about it a cow eats almost non stop and everything it can. A deer on the other hand would perfer something more palatable with less lignin. It was mentioned that the commercial clover contained less lignin and that deer could fill up and the digest it faster bringing them back to the source quicker to feed more. I'm on the fence with this. They might of had a point, I'm not sure. I know my clover came from Northeast Whitetail Seed Company in NY and right now it looks great. Still green and looking good. It is mixed with their chicory and grazing paradise and really didn't take off till after the spraying and the mowing then it grew very thick aqnd full. T?he deer are in it alot and it is finally showing some wear but still has alot left to offer. I have heard the stories about deer not eating brassicas for a year or 2 till they know what they are. I didn't have this issue. It was this plots first year and my lord did they hammer them. Started about 2nd week of Nov and has had steady pressure since then. It is about grazed off now which is prertty amazing. Its about a half acre plot the forage was knee high maybe a little more in places and its gone now. They have pulled the radishes out and ate those also. This plot also had triticale and winter rye in it and they mowed that down also. Everything was from a somewhat commercial seed company. So I guess I'm asking do you think it matters where seed comes from? Do you have any proof/experince with your opinion?
