Abstract

Kansas swine growers are quite sure' that corn-fed growing-finishing pigs will outperform those fed sorghum grain. Just as many others feel that sorghum grain is equal to corn in swine rations. Most of the time sorghum grain is lower in price per pound than corn. Research results suggest that corn and sorghum grain are quite similar in chemical composition and in feeding value. Sorghum grain is more variable in crude protein content than corn. One recent comparison between corn and sorghum grain is summarized in this report.; Swine Day, Manhattan, KS, September 26, 1968
