Oats, Föckinghauser (Organic)
An early maturing, fairly short and lodge resistant white oat with hulls. Used as an animal feed and for hay, or as a winter-kill cover crop in cold climates. Grows well mixed with spring barley and fed in combination for sheep, goats, horses, cows, chickens, ducks, geese, and rabbits. Bred by Wolfgang Kreimer of Mühlenbachhof, Germany, from the old oat variety, Alfred. We collected it in 2007 when visiting Ulla Grall and her seed company Bio- Saatgut in Germany.
