Kale provides a bulk of high quality feed over late summer, autumn and winter months. Most kale cultivars show good levels of aphid and clubroot tolerance. Kale has a deep root system and therefore good drought tolerance once established and can be grazed at any time. Optimum maturity is between 18-26 weeks and is usually only a single graze option from about late May to late August.
Tankard type summer turnips are popular as a milking feed due to their exceptionally high yield potential from a single graze. Leafy turnips offer greater flexibility than other brassica species. Grazing of leafy turnips can be as early as six weeks after sowing.
Excellent option for quick winter feed with highly palatable tops and bulbs
High performance with proven performance year after year
Multi-purpose turnip offering flexibility and good yield potential
High dry matter yields with excellent regrowth potential
Forage rape provides leafy, high quality feed at later times than hybrid leafy turnips. Forage rape generally grows more dry matter from each grazing than leafy turnips. However it generally provides fewer grazings in total than leafy turnips.
