Purple Top Turnip

Grazing animals will utilize forage above ground as well as the roots.  1.5 to 3 pounds of turnip seed per acre, when added to plantings of winter annual cereal grains, can improve forage production. Turnips may extend the fall grazing period after cereal grains have gone dormant since animals harvest the tubers with increased frequency during that period.
