CDC Cowboy

SeCan | Technical Bulletin | Performance Data

Two-row dual purpose barley featuring top forage and grain yields and plump kernels.

CDC Cowboy is well adapted to low input management, lighter soils and drought stress conditions.

Suitable for production across the Prairies.


This two row forage type barley variety has high silage potential and good lodging resistance. Tall with a tremendous amount of plant matter, this barley is tops in dryland silage trials. Designed to provide good yields with minimal crop inputs, Cowboy is a good choice for those who want to seed something without a lot of fuss or costs. Our experience with this variety is that when harvested for grain, it will produce a plump seed kernel with a high test weight even under tough conditions. This variety is best suited for dryland applications as it is too tall for irrigation.
