Sudan Grass, Sorghum Sudanense, is a warm season annual grass that is adaptive to dry, arid growing conditions. It is grown in the Southwest as an animal feed and rotation crop. It is high yielding and can be harvested up to three times per season. With good farming practices, Sudan will produce a fine stem, soft textured grass hay with a high leaf-to-stem ratio. It can be fed directly to cattle or as part of a mixed ration. It is an excellent source of nutritional fiber.
