Barenbrug Denmark attended the AgroNord exhibition together with distributor Linds AS.
Good grasses, happy farmers
Barenbrug and Linds AS were present with a stand at the exhibition. Product Manager Forage Carsten Holmgaard represented Barenbrug Denmark. Holmgaard and the representatives from Linds AS spoke with many local farmers about the grass products Barenbrug is introducing in Denmark. ”We got positive feedback from the farmers who already used our GreenSpirit grass seed”, Holmgaard explains. ”A lot of farmers have tried the mixture GreenSpirit •Struktur with Nutrifibre technology and they are happy with the results. They are enthusiastic about the high yield even after three, four or five years, the durability and the good silage quality which contributes to optimal milk production.”
