Product Used: Outback Forage Oats
Outback Forage oats has proved an excellent clean-up crop and a feed source through the winter for beef farmer Phil Ronalds. Mr Ronalds said it was the first time he had used oats for that purpose and was very pleased with the result. “You can’t get grass to grow like oats through the winter,” he said. “It gives you a crop you can fatten bullocks off.” Mr Ronalds said it exhibited extremely vigorous growth and was able to be grazed just six weeks after planting. “The leaves on the oats were 25mm wide,” he said. “It was just unbelievable. If you want tucker during the middle of winter it’s just fantastic. I couldn’t be happier with the Outbacks.
