Fodder beet forage systems provide a flexible, high quality feed option which have the potential to deliver high yields in autumn, winter and early spring with inherently high rates of utilisation by livestock. Many different livestock systems can benefit from the inclusion of fodder beet.
Successful farm system outcomes from grazing fodder beet rely on appropriate grazing management which minimises the risk of animal health and production issues. This includes a suitable diet plan and a well planned and executed transition phase with appropriate choices around supplement use.
