Yes, grain sorghum (milo) stalks can be mechanically harvested for hay. These recommendations are based on twice a day feeding. Since sorghum contains high moisturising contents, it is a very difficult task to make hay from it and hence, it is provided as silage to the cattle to eat. Grains are low in calcium, so 1.5% limestone (superfine grade) by weight must be fed with all-grain diets. After the grain is harvested, milo stalks can be put in windrows and baled. Sorghum and maize grain are very comparable in terms of energy. Avoid excessive application of manure or nitrogen fertilizer. 0000045034 00000 n 0000147431 00000 n 0000003381 00000 n 0000147546 00000 n Utilization of starch in the rumen is a primary concern for improving milk yield and efficiency of production.
