Even More Options for Emergency Forage: • Master Graze

• Bmr gene 6 Sorghum Sudans - AS6401, 6501 & 6201

– Corn silage acting like haylage! -3-4+ ton DM in 60 days

- If you need a cover crop, add 5#’s of our annual clover mix to your SS seeding

• Forage Oats planted in Fall – Great haylage doesn’t head out

• AF7101, AF7201 Forage Sorghum

– 1-cut system. Some still left Sorghums produce a ton of forage with half the water as corn and love hot & dry!

• Oats plus Winter Triticale

– Get a crop this fall and one Next Spring!

Each provides highly digestible forage with higher sugar, higher protein and lower starch than corn silage and similar energy. SORGHUM SEEDS ARE IN SHORT SUPPLY DUE TO DROUGHT IN THE SOUTHWEST SEED-GROWING AREAS. DON’T WAIT!! Dwight Burkholder
