Sunflower Seeds are a type of oilseed grown in New Zealand as a crop for both human consumption and as animal feed. Sunflower Seeds are a rich source of oil, which can be extracted from the seeds and used for a variety of different applications. In addition to their human uses, Sunflower Seeds are also a valuable source of nutrition for livestock. The seeds are high in protein, fiber, and minerals, and can be incorporated into feed rations to improve animal nutrition and productivity. They will create healthier coats on your stock.
Sunflower Seeds are great to plant with maize for added extra oil content, up to 40-45% by weight. They are also a great option to plant with turnips. Sunflower Seeds can provide up to 28% protein with hulls on.
The seeds are harvested from the sunflower plant, which can grow up to 3 meters tall and produces large, yellow flowers.
