Antler King® Trophy Clover Food Plot Mix - 3.5 lb Bag
This 3.5 lb bag of four perennial varieties of clover, chicory and rapeseed make up Trophy Clover, Antler King's® hardiest and longest lasting perennial mix. It can be planted in the spring or fall and provides your deer herd a 30%+ protein diet during the spring, summer and fall.
Why Trophy Clover?
Because it is a hardy perennial, Trophy Clover Mix can last 6+ years on a single planting. Offering high protein food sources is critical to deer in the spring, summer and fall as protein provides the driving force behind body, bone and antler growth. More protein means bigger bucks and healthier deer.
The hand selected varieties of Clover and Chicory were chosen specifically because they are highly nutritious, palatable, digestible and attract more deer and turkeys than generic clover varieties. At maturity, Trophy Clover can grow 2'-3' tall and provide up to 10 tons of high protein forage per acre. For best maintenance practice, mow trophy clover down to 6"-8" once it has reached 24" tall, or begins to flower, as flowers indicate maturity.
Trophy Clover Mix provides it’s highest level of protein, digestibility and nutrition when it is growing, so mowing increases attraction. The variety of Rapeseed found in Trophy Clover Mix is present as a cover crop to help the small clovers establish themselves in year one (Trophy Clover can grow roots as long as 24"-30"), provide shade during a hot dry summer and act as late season forage in the first year.
Trophy Clover Mix is an important part of your deer management program because it can provide 30%+ protein all spring and summer to help maximize your herd's potential. Bucks, does and fawns all require high levels of protein during the growing season to survive and thrive. While the 4 varieties of clover and 1 variety of chicory provide high protein and important minerals for many years, they aren't the only plants offering high quality nutrition to your deer herd.
The leafy greens in this special rape variety can provide 15-20% protein and as the weather turns cold it will convert it's stored up starches into sweet high energy sugars, triggering maturity and increased consumption in the colder months. The plant varieties in Trophy Clover Mix offer deer a year-round food source that will grow and thrive well into the winter months. It will green up early in the spring, offering deer the optimum nutrition they need all year long. Trophy Clover Mix should be the foundation of your deer and land management program. It is recommended to plant 1/2 of your available food plots in a long lasting, high protein perennial like Trophy Clover Mix.
