Sudangrass

Sudangrass serves as an excellent hay crop for cattle. The grass will get up to between 6 and 8 feet in height. We'll cut the grass in the heading stage, leaving more than 4 inches so that we will get regrowth and a possible second cutting later in the year. Sudan is a warm weather grass and it will die when subjected to a heavy frost. It's perfect for this time of year in the hot Texas sun.
