We call it wild Millet. I think foxtail is the proper name. I can pretty much have this field. It's got a poor stand of haygrazer and probably 70 percent foxtail. It looks like cow food. And I know it got fertilizer when the hybrid Sudan was planted... worth 20.00 a 4x6 to get it put up..
Hays gonna be short this year, I'm betting.

I don't know , foxtail is pretty nutritionally deficient , 20 plus transportation might make it worthwhile to look elsewhere , because it will need supplementation . Now , if you're gonna feed it right there close , probably worth it .

Take a sample and send it in to be tested. Then you won't have to guess
