Using Fodder Beet – An introduction
Posted in Biodiversity, Nutrition, Livestock
We are extremely lucky to be joined by Dr Jim Gibbs, vet, ruminant nutritionist and fodder beet specialist, who has designed fodder beet grazing systems over in New Zealand. The first in our three part series, he joins SAC Beef and Sheep Consultant, Kirsten Williams, to discuss the history of fodder beet development, the importance of transition onto the nutrient rich crop, calculating yield and the method used to allocate the crop to livestock.
