Just wondering if any of the readers have experience of black medic? I am looking for a legume to add to a cereal crop grown for green feed or silage to fix N and add a little protein to the feed. Really intrigued by this plant - an annual legume that reseeds itself from a seed bank of hard seed. Sounds useful in a situation where we would grow winter feed on the same land every year. I also like the fact that it is considered a weed by many - "weeds" tend to grow really well.

Burclover grows as a yard weed here and the grazing yield would be low but it is a tough plant. Texas A&M has a selection that they offered some years back of another species of medic. We had some sheep people to come by one time and when they saw some it was like they had seen a ghost. They specialized in sheep with extreme wool quality, color and price and knew that the burs are the devil to get out of the wool. I'd try Texas A&M to see if they still deal with their work or have a grower of the seeds.
