The KingFisher Forage System

Why KingFisher?

There are a lot of excellent nutritionists and agronomists doing work in agriculture. You likely have some working for you.

But too often they are not on the same page as each other, efficiencies get lost, frustrations grow and you the farmer get stuck trying to make both of them (and your banker) happy.

Our forage specialists will help you bridge that gap.

What could a Kingfisher Forage System do for your farm?

  • Improve your farm's performance
  • Increase feed efficiency
  • Lower feed costs

By looking at targeted forage quality and yields, crop rotations, nutrient management, water needs, storage and harvesting strategies, we can accelerate your forage program and set your farm up for success!

The KingFisher Team

KingFisher Products

KingFisher forage products are the result of an exciting team of agronomists, nutritionists and forage researchers. All brought together by Byron Seeds, King's AgriSeeds & Southeast AgriSeeds to develop the most complete forage lineup in the world for your farm.

We are farmers ourselves. Between our companies, we source top genetics world-wide and make those available to you through a network of over 400 dealers. With the efficiency of top products and smart planning, you can produce wholesome foods for the end consumers and that’s the strength of the American farmer.

Providing More Than Products

Combined Research

Our team’s pooled resources help deliver elevated premium forages. We search worldwide for the best forage seed, evaluate many product options, develop the top-performers, and sell only the varieties which we would use on our own farms.

Crop Management Strategies

We create and share the most comprehensive and useful total solutions program for maximum productivity and profitability. We partner with livestock and dairy operators to develop forage production plans tailored to their personal needs — and our shared values.

Education

Our seminars and training promote our goal of strong agronomics and soil health to reduce the risks inherent in farming, and to deliver a consistent and dependable supply of premium feed and forage for healthier livestock.

Farmers helping farmers

As farmers helping farmers, our people network includes over 400 experienced dealers; we feed our products to our own livestock. We don’t see customers as demographics or markets, we do business with people. We don’t merely sell, we share what we’ve learned the hard way on our own farms, and ideas we’ve learned from customers.

KingFisher Corn Hybrids

KingFisher corn hybrids are selected for livestock. The KingFisher Corn program started strong and continues to grow. KingFisher now has 20 unique hybrids, with many hybrids also available in Certified Organic.

KingFisher has also introduced specialty hybrids, including Ultra High Oil and Male Sterile options. KingFisher hybrids were all developed and selected with an emphasis on high energy and digestibility, without sacrificing yield.

We evaluate our corn hybrids using two key concepts to livestock feed efficiency.

SofStarch

The lineup is ranked and rated on grain availability and digestibility. SofStarch™ corn has 10-15% higher starch availability, reducing fed starch in the diet for KingFisher producers. Studies showed that SofStarch™ type corn had less than half the rate of passage as normal flint corns. This means that it not only digests quicker, it also stays in the cow longer which greatly increases the efficiency of the starch and other nutrients.

FiberGest

The lineup is ranked and rated for fiber digestibility, based on TTNDFD to make hybrid selection easier. FiberGest™ rates hybrids on a scale of 1 to 10, with 5 as the industry average, so that you can tell at a glance which KingFisher hybrid fits your feeding plan. Only selections with top tier fiber digestibility are advanced.
