Coleor Kale Brassica is a type of brassica plant that is commonly grown as a forage crop for livestock. It is a fast-growing annual plant that can reach a height of 3-4 feet and has a high yield potential. The plant produces large, dark green leaves that are highly palatable to livestock and can be grazed or harvested for hay or silage.

All types of Kale Brassica are known for their high nutritional value and are good sources of energy, protein, and minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium. It is also low in fiber, making it easier for animals to digest and absorb nutrients.

A diploid kale, Coleor is a high yielding, very leafy, purplish variety of medium height, with a very high leaf to stem ratio (60+%), finer ‘branches’, and high leaf dry matter content. Coleor Kale Brassica has high dry matter digestibility and ME content which means potentially higher livestock performance. It has very good winter hardiness, and very good snow loading ability (less likely to fall over when covered with snow).

One of the unique features of Coleor Kale Brassica is its high concentration of glucosinolates, which are compounds that have been shown to have anti-cancer and antioxidant properties. In addition, all Kale Brassicas contain high levels of vitamin C, vitamin K, and other antioxidants, making it a beneficial supplement to the diet of livestock.
