Big Fellow Soybeans are an extremely tall, very large leafed, Roundup Ready forage variety from Eagle Seed. It has been tested in numerous university trials and is an outstanding high protein, high tonnage producer. Big Fellow is also known for its drought tolerance and indeterminant growth habit which makes it truly rare. It can keep growing through heavy browsing by cattle or deer. It continues providing excellent nutrition later in the year after other varieties have completed their life cycle.
Big Fellow is superior to both earlier and later maturing soybeans as a food for animals because it puts on more than twice as many nodes as a regular cultivar -- this means more height, tonnage, leaf area, and browse tolerance. This variety is a favorite of silage growers since it has a very high feed value...equal to alfalfa.

It's early in the season, but they were up in a week, even though we are in a bit of a drought. The spot they are is typically wet, so must have still been enough moisture in the soil to germinate!
Great germination. They do stand up to browse better than regular soybeans. I usually can't get soybeans to grow because deer eat them as quick as they come up and they don't grow back. Big Fellow still grows even when bitten off at the ground. We'll see how they continue to do but love them so far.
