sorghum silage vs. corn silage
Does anyone have or know where I can get information regarding the nutritional value and expected yield of sorghum silage vs. corn silage????? We currently put up sorghum silage, but, have to stop harvest to do it. I would like to chop corn and get it done before our regular harvest starts. I'm having trouble convincing my business partner of this and would like to find come comparison data if possible. Thanks in advance
Re: sorghum silage vs. corn silage
I'd suggest your extension agent, or even the feed store or Co-Op nutritionist.
FWIW, I live in central Nebraska, where there are lots of farmer/feeders, along with irrigation, so any crop planted will grow. I know several feedlot owner/managers personally, and more by reputation, and I can't think of a single one, off the top of my head, that does not use Corn for silage, with the exception of one or two fields on thin soil, on a hill, where corn is much more likely to have a crop failure.
