WHAT HAPPENS AFTER THE FORAGE SEED LEAVES THE FARM?
Farmers transport the seed they harvest from the field to their farms where they store it in bins. When they wish to sell it, they load it back on a truck to take it to a seed cleaning plant in one of the nearby towns. Here it is cleaned and put on to large trucks to be transported either directly to a boat heading to Europe, or directly to a seed company in Canada or the United States. Seed companies take our seed and either sell it directly to farmers, or else they mix it with other kinds of seed, package it in small bags, and sell it to stores all over North America as lawn grass seed.
