Join New Zealand fodder beet expert Dr Jim Gibbs and UK farm consultant Marc Jones for this practical on-farm event to learn how to successfully outwinter stock on fodder beet to maximise performance and reduce costs.

The event will focus on how the crop can fit into your farming and livestock systems and be used with herbal and grass leys.

At the event you will learn about:

  • Avoiding acidosis, transitioning of stock carefully onto crop and ensuring their full nutritional and health requirements are met
  • Successful outwintering of stock on fodder beet
  • Maximising stock performance on fodder beet during different lactation stages including dry off for dairy cattle
  • Use of grass/herbal leys

If you’re involved with cattle (beef or dairy) or sheep and are looking to outwinter stock and integrate livestock into your farming operation, this event is for you.

There are several meetings across the country so if you’re unable to make this one, other dates and locations are available.
