What would you be trying to achieve with it.? I can see the value if you had a short window between crops to fill, it’s a one and done. I’d likely still choose sorghum sudan.

Also the analysis may be a bit of a mystery for our UK friends. We use the same lab.

Looking for a digestible fibre crop with lots of tonnage. We have a short growing season and the taps all but turn off around mid July. This would fit nicely as a double crop after winter forage. Figure it should compliment corn silage and winter triticale/wheat nicely. Our cows do much better off a consistent feed rather than changing diets to accommodate a multi cut system. Sorghum Sudan’s haven’t performed well up this far north.
