vivant brassica

Vivant Hybrid Brassica is a quick-growing brassica with very little bulb development. Vivant is best suited for multiple grazing cycle situations because of its excellent regrowth. It can be used to extend the grazing season in the fall or planted alongside warm season annuals for multiple grazings in the summer. With proper management (first grazing in 40-45 days AND subsequent grazing cycles every 25-30 days when grazed no less than 4″), it has the potential to yield over 5 tons of dry matter per acre.

- Known for its quick regrowth, even under close grazing
- All the energy of the plant is contained in the leaves – different than regular turnips
- Highly digestibility – suitable for dairy, beef, and sheep
- When fed, brassicas need to be combined with other forages (no more than 2/3 of the total animal diet) to prevent potential livestock disorders
