Alternative kale feeding

December 2022

Greenfeed crops can be an important winter feed source, but intensive grazing needs careful management. This project found environmental and management benefits to harvesting kale to feed out to livestock, but less difference to soil compaction or water infiltration than anticipated.

This article summarises the results of a Rural Professionals Fund project that aimed to compare the environmental, farm management and economic impacts between harvesting greenfeed (kale) and feeding to stock in dispersed locations and the traditional method of grazing it in situ.
