Most livestock producers, especially dairy farmers, have a need for a high quality roughage in summer when cool-season grass pastures are normally low in production. Alfalfa and clover-grass mixtures grazed rotationally, and small grain and "grass" silage or hay are common sources of summer feed . There is an increasing interest, however, in forage sorghums and forage millets for grazing or green-chop .
