Sudan grass
sorghum sudan

So I guess then planting Corn is out if 80 bucks a hundred is expensive :wink:

PS When you figure out the differnce in that seed and that it's 4x the cost it was 4 years ago, believe you might change your mind.

I dont know how yall farm corn up there but, you left out one important detail that aint cheap either H2O, alll this corn down here gets flooded.
good luck

PS I guess I could make hay pencil @ $80 cwt for seed but with the stock gone and the drought condition unknown, why work that cheap ?

You could get H to buy more goats and rent him pasture if the weed crop comes in good. :wink:

If you were to get sufficient rain, what would come in voluntararily?

I have just laid in 120 bag so I guess i will probably plant it.
And yes it is expensive, but like I said show me any seed that isn't expensive.

So the alternatives in TX would be what, cotton or milo?

Being ranchers, all we have ever planted was the cane type hay and have some costal Bermuda with improved pastures, works good if we get normal rainfall.
so I really caint say what crops would be an alternative we aint set up for anything like that, silos/Bins etc.
good luck
