BRIGADIER™ – STOCK AVAILABLE
Brigadier is a traditional polyploid mangel type fodder beet with orange roots. Brigadier fodder beet sits higher out of the soil (>60%) compared to other forms of fodder beet. This suits in-situ grazing by animals. The roots of Brigadier are typically high in energy but low in crude protein. The tops have a lower energy value but good crude protein levels. Together they form a balanced nutritional feed.
The highest proportion of bulb above ground, together with the lowest DM%, helps ensure Brigadier is the most suitable for young stock. Its ability to carry good levels of quality leaf into the cooler months helps benefit these systems.
Brigadier™ Plant Back Programme
Sometimes things happen with farming that can have big implications on our systems, that’s why RAGT has developed the Brigadier™ Plant Back Programme. It covers less than optimum field establishment of 2023 supplied and sown Brigadier™ crops due to environmental or paddock conditions that were outside of the grower’s control. Once the area has been assessed by RAGT and determined as a replant, the grower can access Brigadier™ replacement seed to replant for the specific area at 50% of their original per unit retail purchase price, provided by their participating merchant.
