Supra Millet

Supra Millet is a drought tolerant, photoperiod sensitive, non-GMO annual hybrid millet grass developed to produce a top quality, high yielding haylage, or silage crop.

As a seedless variety, Supra Millet can yield 10+ bone-dry tons per acre annually with up to 27% protein and an NDFD30 of 50-65%.

 

Beef cattle, dairy cattle, and sheep find this sweet, high nutrition forage very palatable, with no prussic acid concerns.
