is a premium hybrid forage
sorghum is primarily used for silage and green chop. The
"Brown Midrib" characteristic of this plant reduces the
lignin content by 40%-60% over conventional hybrid forage
sorghums, depending on environmental and cultural
conditions. Millennium has excellent green leaf retention
with very sweet and soft stems. Digestibility is increased
by reducing the quantity of indigestible lignin in the total
plant. This reduction of lignin, increases cellulose and hemicellulose content, both being more digestible than
lignin. This hybrid has exceptional levels of sugar and
structural carbohydrates in the stem and palatability is very
high. These sugars provide additional energy and nutrition.
Large tannin free grain panicles add to the nutritional
content and energy of the silage produced.
