Harvesting Sorghum Fodder for Dairy Farms

Updated: Sep 11, 2021

  • The crop is ready for harvest at silk stage for fodder purpose, which continues up to milk stage.

  • The early harvesting though produce good quality fodder but yield is reduced.

  • In case of late harvesting, the fodder quality is impaired

  • Sorghum yields around 160-200 quintals of green fodder per acre during rainy season and 100-120 quintals of fodder per acre during summer season.

  • Palatability increases as hard stems when fermented into silage become soft and better utilized by the dairy animals.
