The Brown Mid-Rib trait of HayMaster BMR gives it distinct advantages over conventional sorghum sudangrass hybrids:
The entire plant is highly palatable and cattle will consume much more of it.
This means that you don’t have to “crowd” your stand with a high planting rate to force smaller stems.
You can use a much lower planting rate of HayMaster BMR and allow the stems to get big.
Cattle will still consume more of the stem than a conventional hybrid, as well as be able to digest more of it.
The plant material of HayMaster BMR also has a higher digestibility than a conventional hybrid.
This means that the animal is able to effectively utilize more of the forage and less is passed through as waste.
Lower lignin content allows the animal’s digestive system to break down the material much more efficiently.
Higher palatability combined with higher digestibility result in increased weight gains, more plant material consumed and a lower planting rate.
For normal usage we recommend that BMR's receive a minimum of 60-65 units of Nitrogen at or before planting time and that a top dressing of at least 20-34 units of Nitrogen be applied after each cutting. We recommend that no more than 180 units of N be applied throughout the growing season. Phosphorous, potassium, micronutrients.
Always soil test your ground. Without soil testing apply 350-400 lbs per acre of 17-17-17 or a 1-1-1 type fertilizer. Follow above nitrogen fulfilment.
BMR's usually harvested first time at or around 50-60 days after seeding product.
Subsequent cuttings will be at approximately 40-45 day intervals depending upon temperature and water supply.
An excellent choice for greenchop for feeding beef and dairy cows as well as sheep and goats. The rapid growth potential improves management options and optimizes production per unit area of cropland.
Works well as a grazed forage feeding crop. Rotational grazing will maximize the productivity of this crop. See outstanding weight gains (up to 3 lb/day for 500-600 weight calves) on calves grazing BMR.
