In livestock, the main item of expenditure has always been and will always be the cost of feed, which, according to various estimates, accounts for 60 to 75% of all expenditures for raising an animal or poultry. Therefore, it is extremely important to find food that is as inexpensive as possible, but at the same time ensuring rapid animal growth, good digestibility and metabolism. One of the most suitable for the above parameters is sorghum, which provides even in terrible weather conditions a significant amount of processed plant mass.
Prevalence and Characteristics of Sorghum
There are several main types of sorghum, among which several options are suitable for industrial animal husbandry and poultry farming: grain, sugar or Sudan. Each type has its undoubted advantages. In terms of transpiration, sorghum significantly exceeds its main “competitor” – fodder corn, being, in fact, the most nutritious and often used silage forage, capable of providing your farm with forage for a long period of time under the observed storage conditions. Grain sorghum is also often used in animal husbandry because of its excellent composition – it contains from 11 to 16% of easily digestible proteins, from 3 to 5% of healthy vegetable fats, almost 70% of the total volume is starch, and the amount important for full growth and development animal micro- and macroelements allows the use of fodder sorghum for both young animals and mature individuals.
According to the assurances of experts in the field of animal husbandry, adding sorghum grains to compound feeds has the same beneficial effect as using barley for these purposes. However, barley is more expensive, while the yield of grain sorghum is almost 2 times higher than that of fodder barley, while sorghum can grow quietly under conditions unrealistic for normal growth of barley.
