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.
If it ain't tight , It ain't right.
You can all go to he// . I'll go to Texas.

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 .
Being poor is the most expensive thing there is

It'll blister a horses mouth pretty bad, but I've never seen it hurt a hungry cow.

I hate it. If it is the foxtail - like we have - it will Eat you up handling square bales.

Hard to tell in that picture....but I think it is Little Barley, although it does seem tall, maybe it WAS fertilized.https://nobleapps.noble.org/plantimageg ... ntTypeID=2
The foxtail (wild millet) I know is a little more spikey....https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/ ... Pomona.jpg
Either way they say it isn't much for cows....but then, if the cows got nothing else...

I hate it, but at least for grazing the cows eat it just fine
