SORGHUM (MILO)

PACK SIZE

20kg woven polypropylene bags.

 

Of all the grains, sorghum is the most variable in its protein and amino acid content.

 

Sorghum can be classified into two types according to the level of tannin content in the grain, grain sorghum and forage sorghum. Grain sorghum typically has a low tannin content.

 

Sorghum can be fed as the sole grain component to poultry and livestock of all ages. For best results, the whole grain should be cracked or coarsely ground, otherwise some of the grain may pass through the animal.

 

A buffer should also be added to sheep and cattle diets to reduce acidosis. It is recommended that sorghum be analysed for protein content to allow selection of the correct amino acid content for diet formulation.
