Forage Crops

Mixed forage diets will help to increase animal intakes, ensure optimum rumen stability and improve feed utilisation. As a result of this livestock performance should increase – either by boosting milk production or through enhanced liveweight gains.


Some Benefits of Growing Forage Crops: 

  • Improved profitability
  • Bretts offer a wide range of protein balancers to match your forage crops
  • Full traceability
  • Flexible cropping options
  • An excellent break crop

We market a range of fodder and catch crops to suit every farm and farming system. While plant breeders are continuously improving the genetics of forage crops giving better yield and performance, many forages are now better understood leading to improved intake predictions and accurate assessments for both energy and protein requirements. These crops can often be ready for utilisation within 8-10 weeks from sowing. Crops in this category include stubble turnips and forage rape.
If there is time within the available growing season then you can consider options like fodder beet, swedes and kale.
