Maris Kestrel kale is s short leafy type ideal for fattening lambs. It is highly digestible with good protein and D value. It is an ideal choice for out wintering with good winter hardiness and high leaf to stem ration. Maris Kestrel is bred to produce a low-fibre stem and high digestibility which leads to superior animal production. Maris Kestrel’s utilisation is August through to the following March depending on the sowing date. There are two main ways of feeding to livestock – the first is strip grazing behind an electric fence which should be moved daily. It is advised to keep a close eye on the levels of wastage which will help determine when you move the fence. A grass runback area is recommended. The second way to feed to the livestock is zero grazing - cutting the crop with a forage harvester will help secure the maximum use of green feed with little waste.
