I think these big companies just through together a hodge-podge of seeds knowing that something will take, and the buyer will be happy seeing green in their plot.
Basically. I'd say 75%+ have annual ryegrass... and you know i'm guilty of throwing a few bags of that stuff down and YES it will look like a picturesque green food plot but it's also ryegrass so yeah read the labels carefully.

Also do you guys find that stuff germinates after it has been sitting on the shelf for a year? I've had mixed results using seed even just a year later. Longer than that and I might as well pitch it.

Ah ok. So if it's one of the sealed bags it's probably OK for the most part. I had an entire 50lb bag of field rye that was kept in the garage go bad one year. Seed itself looked fine but didn't produce a single speck of green. The bag was paper so I assume fluctuations in moisture content caused most of it to fail if it was good to begin with.
