Robbos

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.

Above ground %

Robbos bulbs typically sit 45-50% out of the ground, and their good palatability make them easy for stock to graze. The high proportion of above ground DM ensures less soil ingestion and very high utilisation.

 

Good leaf keeping ability

Robbos has very good leaf keeping ability through autumn, winter and early spring. This is important because the leaf contains a high percentage of the crop’s protein.
