With very high levels of crude protein and digestible nutrients, the mean minimum standards for ruminant nutrition are met on a sudangrass diet. Sudangrass silage has digestibility and nutritional quality similar to pearl millet for sheep and goats. Although about 15% – 20% lower in available energy, sudangrass possesses considerably more protein than corn silage. A versatile option for planting, sudangrass can be used for fodder, grazing, cut-and-carry, wilting, ensiling, or drying. Sudangrass is an excellent fit for producers requiring short rotations. In regions with hot, dry summers, sudangrass will have a higher carrying capacity than other grasses or legumes. Utilize sudangrass as an emergency crop should another crop fail.
