Dry matter, matters!
High dry matter content in KWS Feedbeet
Global demand for dairy and meat products is increasing, but current market developments put prices under pressure which can make life as a dairy or livestock farmer challenging. In UK dairy production, feed typically accounts for 30-40% of the total cost of production. Therefore any savings in ration costs or improvements in feed conversion ratios are quickly translated into improved business performance.
Traditionally, beet grown for feeding to livestock were bulky and carried a high water content. This is no longer the case. Modern KWS Feedbeet varieties feature higher dry matter levels. On average KWS Feedbeet deliver up to 44% more DM per tonne of fresh weight then low† DM fodder beet varieties.
