The 'Fodder Beet – A Focus On Dairy' event is one of many events listed. View all events.
Fodder beet as a crop to ration to livestock, has grown in popularity over Scotland the last number of years. It is a crop that is extremely nutritious and palatable and offers many benefits to dairy systems.
This webinar is the last of our series of three, and will focus on dairy. We will be joined by Dr. Jim Gibbs, who is based in New Zealand, he is a ruminant nutritionist, vet and all round fodder beet specialist. He has been involved in the development of the crop in livestock farms for many years over in New Zealand, and has vast experience in this. We will also be joined by Kirsten Williams, SAC beef and sheep consultant.
This is a must attend event for anyone interested in knowing more about maximising the use of fodder beet for dairy cattle.
