Used as a standing feed crop, Barkant is a high yielding tankard bulb turnip with large upright leaf tops. It is early maturing making it a better option than grain for summer to autumn milk production. Ready to graze in 10-12 weeks. Feed quality peaks around 12 weeks, but can often be carried through until 17 weeks before grazing.
