In Canada and US "winter rye" can be bought from a feedstore.

Try asking for cereal rye, ryecorn or ryegrain in a feedstore. It is a cereal grain which looks like barley - but smaller. Check that it has no preservatives/fungicides if you find it as seedstock.

Ryegrass looks like lawn grass seed and is NOT what you want. Here's a good primer on the difference:

@halo
Ooops! I guess you didn't need that primer. :oops: (Many do. :thumbup: )

Cereal rye is not available in feedstores in NZ? There's always the LHBS if you don't mind their prices.

@jase
Dunno f you were talking to me - but I've never posted on youtube.

Hauraki might be able to help out. If they cant help I don't think any one NZ could. I looked Rye up on Wikipedia and it seems to be a northern thing.

What's the plans after selling herd? (apart from having a well deserved holiday)

dry stock farming? my dad makes a good income buying and selling small dry stock units, buys real rough places does them up and flicks them. Otherwise forestry is always looking for good workers.
