    KWS Feedbeet

The sugarbeet for feed. Makes fodder beets look old – the new perspective on cattle feed

With its high dry matter yield, high energy content and good palatability, KWS Feedbeets are a valuable in-house basic feed. With this basic feed, you gain greater independence from concentrated feed and a useful supplement for protein-rich and low-energy rations.

The cost of feed alone accounts for around half of the production costs in German milk production. Thus, rationing cost savings, increasing the in-house basic feed share and improving feed conversion can have a positive and rapid impact on operational performance. In order to support you in increasing your operational performance, we offer you KWS Feedbeet high and stable yields for dairy and beef cattle feed. In principle, all KWS beet varieties are suitable both for use as a biogas substrate and as KWS Feedbeet. What began with the use of biogas now gains a new dynamic with the use as Feedbeet, so that the beet is indispensable as feed for cattle on many farms.
