Remember back at the beginning of December we were spreading fertiliser on our sorghum crop and I said it was going to grow fast and furiously? Well, it did!
We’ve put our weaned calves onto it and some of the plants are eight foot tall! Can you see the cattle in amongst it? It must be like us going into a chocolate factory – we wouldn’t know where to start eating! I think the calves must feel like this!
The best thing about this crop is that it can be eaten down, the stock taken out of the paddock and we let the sorghum re-grow.
Then we can put stock back in again! So throughout the summer there will always be some green feed.
