UCCE researchers are currently working on a project to determine the value of sorghum silage in California dairy systems. Sorghum has gained attention in recent years as it is well adapted to drought/water stress conditions, but very little research has been done with respect to growing and feeding sorghum silage on commercial California dairies.
Please join us for a discussion on growing sorghum for silage. First year information from the project will be presented, as well as some other considerations for growing sorghum in California. Whether you're new to sorghum, or looking to refine management, these meetings will present the current knowledge of sorghum silage in California; California derived information will be presented.
Topics will include:
- Variety selection considerations
- Water & nutrient use
- Sugar cane aphid management
- 2016 sorghum silage quality report
