Invitation

Growing your own forage crop for your livestock smallholding can have many benefits; you get full traceability, and reducing your reliance on bought-in feed can improve your profitability – to name a few!

Swedes provide an excellent source of high energy winter feed for sheep or beef / dairy cows, and there are low production costs involved in growing it. Swedes can also be grown on a wide range of soil types, including clay and sandy loams, silt and peat.

Invitation swede is suitable for feeding sheep or beef / dairy cattle. It has very uniform roots which remain clean and mud-free for extra palatability. Invitation swede produces large leaves for extra grazing potential.

These swedes are especially suited to utilisation after Christmas [long keep systems] or those wishing to use them later (Jan – Feb), with their excellent winter hardiness.

Invitation’s clubroot resistance and excellent resistance to powdery mildew mean that yield is not compromised, and more importantly neither is the palatability to the grazing animal. Being clubroot resistant means there may also be the additional opportunity to sell swedes for culinary use, if there is a market demand in your area.

Graded seed for precision sowing is available on request.
