They have the potential to produce high yields over a relatively short growing period and can contribute substantial amounts of fresh fodder when grazing may be scare. There is today more interest in the use of forage crops to extend the grazing season and to reduce feeding costs. Countrywide can offer a number of forage root crops as a straight or in a mixture.
Stock should be introduced gradually over a two week period and an area of grassland should be available for animals to return to. Water, hay and straw should also be available.
