German Millet

A popular hay type millet that is leafy and fine-stemmed with compact heads. It exhibits good lodging resistance. The hay is sweet and palatable when harvested at late bloom. It is later than Siberian millet
with yellow seed.

Hybrid Pearl Millet

Hybrid Pearl Millet has little or no prussic acid with good regrowth after cutting. For best feed quality, clipping should be done in the pre-boot stage. Grazing should begin when plants are approximately 25 inches tall. Avoid grubbing to the ground to allow the best regrowth.

Japanese Millet

Japanese millet grows 2 to 4 feet tall. Taller and coarser than other foxtail millets, it matures quickly and thus its forage yield is much less than that of pearl millet. Japanese millet is also planted for wildlife feed and for temporary soil stabilization on construction sites.

Ladak Alfalfa

An older USDA �public� variety that is slow to recover between cuttings. This variety is very drought tolerant with very good winter hardiness. Used in grass mixes for improved pasture applications. Fall Dormancy is 3.

Ladino Clover

Ladino is a long-lived perennial which spreads by creeping stems or stolons that root at the nodes. A giant form of white clover which is very high in protein, vitamins and minerals. It is a good producer of high quality feed and is utilized extensively as a soil building crop. It is an excellent legume to use in combination with other legumes and grasses.

Mammoth Red Clover

Mammoth red clover or single- cut clover is not as desirable for hay or pasture as medium red clover. It blooms about 10 days to 2 weeks later than medium red clover and recovers very slowly after cutting. Mammoth is larger and coarser than medium and tends to be more perennial in growth habit.

Medium Red Clover Seed (Trifolium pratense)

Red clover is a short-lived perennial, 2-3 years, and usually produces 2-3 cuttings of hay or silage per year with most aggressive growth in the spring. Red clover is an aggressive establisher and can be seeded alone, in mixtures with grasses, frost seeded with a nurse crop, or interseeded into an existing stand. Forage quality is comparable with alfalfa quality under similar harvest schedule.

Northern Origin Alfalfa

A blend of common alfalfas produced in a northern environment. Known to be very winter hardy with average disease resistance. Yield expectations are average with average forage quality. Use in a short rotations or planted in less than ideal growing conditions. Composed of Fall Dormancy 3 alfalfas.

Oats

The oat plant is an annual grass with kinds and varieties adapted either to fall planting and midsummer harvest or spring planting and late summer harvest. Most oats are used for livestock feed in this
country either as grain, pasture, hay or silage. Less than 5% of the total oat production in this country is used as food for human consumption. The human consumption is mainly in the form of breakfast foods and oat flour.

Ranger Alfalfa

A university �public� variety that shows improved recovery after harvest. A very winter hardy variety with improved disease resistance. Can be used in dryland applications where soil moisture is limited and responds to higher management inputs. A Fall Dormancy 3 variety.

Rape

Rape is an annual, considered neither legume nor grass. It is a short season leafy brassica show stems and leaves are ready for harvest 90-120 days after establishment. Rape prefers rich and well drained soils and is a heavy user of nitrogen.

Sainfoin

Sainfoin is a winter hardy, non-bloat legume whose forage is high in quality, very palatable and readily consumed. It is deep-rooted and very drought resistant.

Siberian Millet

An early maturing hay type, adapted to the northern Great Plains. Requires approximately 60 to 75 days to harvest. Early maturity is its strong point as the plant is short and not a heavy yielder. Seeds are orange in color.

Sorghum

Widely cultivated as a grain and forage, a drought tolerant bunchgrass type. Typically used for milo grain production in the south and forage production in the north.

Sorghum-Sudangrass (Sorghum × drummondii)

Sorghum-sudangrass is a hybrid cross between sorghum and sudangrass. It is a finer stemmed warm season annual grass when compared to forage sorghum and will regrow after each harvest. It can grow up to 15 feet tall and typically has small seed heads. Seed is produced on a panicle which is open and erect. The leaves are similar to corn but are shorter and sometimes wider. Drought tolerance is high with the water requirement being approximately 1/3 less than corn.
