Blizzard

Fodder beet

Robbos has relatively soft orange-yellow bulbs, suitable for grazing by all stock types. Its high leaf quality can also help with transitioning stock onto beet.

Blizzard has performed very well in trials, with significantly higher total DM yield than low - medium DM cultivars. Blizzard is not recommended for grazing because it has a high proportion of the bulb in the ground, reducing utilisation, but making it ideal for lifting.

 

 

Storage

The higher DM content of Blizzard enables it to be kept for longer in a windrow after being lifted. When leaves are removed. Blizzard can be stored for up to 5 months, but bulbs will dry out over time, so DM % may need to be re-tested to allow for accurate feed allocation.
