mangel fodder beet
SF Brigadier is a traditional polyploid Mangel type fodder beet with orange roots. SF Brigadier fodder beet sits higher out of the soil (>60%) compared to other forms of fodder beet. This suits in-situ grazing by animals. The roots of SF Brigadier are typically high in energy but low in crude protein.
The tops have a lower energy value but good crude protein levels. Together they form a balanced nutritional feed.
- New Zealand's #1 fodder beet
- Proven over thousands of hectares
- The highest proportion of bulb above ground than any other commercially available variety
- Lowest bulb DM% available (up to 13%) = true mangel type
- Exceptional utilisation by any class of stock
