Worldwide, sorghum is a food grain for humans. In the United States, sorghum is used primarily as a feed grain for livestock. Feed value of grain sorghum is similar to corn. The grain has more protein and fat than corn, but is lower in vitamin A. When compared with corn on a per pound basis, grain sorghum feeding value ranges from 90% to nearly equal to corn. The grain is highly palatable to livestock, and intake seldom limits livestock productivity. However, some sorghum varieties and hybrids which were developed to deter birds are less palatable due to tannins and phenolic compounds in the seed. The grain should be cracked or rolled before feeding to cattle; this improves the portion digested.


Pasturing cattle or sheep on sorghum stubble, after the grain has been harvested, is a common practice. Both roughage and dropped heads are utilized. Stubble with secondary growth must be pastured carefully because of the danger of prussic acid (HCN) poisoning.


Grain sorghum may also be used as whole-plant silage, however another sorghum, sweet sorghum, was developed as a silage crop. Sweet sorghum produces much higher forage yields than grain sorghum, but feed quality will likely be lesser because there is no grain. Some growers mix grain sorghum with soybeans to produce a higher protein silage crop.

2 of 5 Poor communication March 6, 2020
Reviewer: Steven Crawford from Maurertown, VA United States  
I placed an order on February 28 and received confirmation of the order from seed ranch. On February 29, 2020, I received an email from Sed Ranch notifying me that my order shipped. As of March 6, 2020 according to the fedex tracking info: “Shipping label has been created. The status will be updated when shipment begins to travel.” This is concerning as I have received no other communication on the status of my order. I ordered 185 pounds of seed and spent a premium amount of money for the seeds. I need those seeds and need to know they are en route.

5 of 5 Great supplier February 13, 2020
Reviewer: BROGAN BEGLEY from Honolulu, HI United States  
I ordered a 10lb bag of sorghum just to test Seed Ranch on quality/speed. The seeds arrived faster than I expected and I could find no issues with them (no other seeds/plant parts etc). I have yet to use them but so far it looks like I will definitely be ordering more. Especially with the free shipping!
