FE PS2 BMR Sorghum x Sudan


 

*Weight:

PS2 Brand is a new brown midrib sorghum X sudangrass hybrid with exceptional palatability and digestibility for utilization by dairy and beef cattle.  The addition of the bmr gene increases the proportions of cellulose and hemicellulose in the stem and significantly reduces lignin content in the plant. Stems look and feel softer to the touch.  You will notice a distinct light brownish color in the leaf midrib and in the stems cortex.  Lignin is the non-digestible component of the plant cell walls that is generally regarded as the primary factor in limiting animal feed intake and fiber digestibility.  Animal nutritionists agree that greater feed intake and better fiber digestibility translates to greater feed utilization and animal efficiency.
