Supplemental summer pastures are in great demand by many Tennessee farmers who raise dairy or beef cattle. Little data are available, however, to aid these farmers in selecting the best varieties of grasses or legumes to serve this purpose. Specifically, information is lacking on the two new varieties of Sudan grass, Sorghum vulgare var. Sudanese, which only recently have been introduced. These new varieties need to be compared as to palatability and yields with other crops that are now serving the farmer as a supplemental summer pasture.
