WHY RHODES GRASS IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF ANIMAL FEED

For maintaining a balance between feedstock and cultivation expenses, farmers need a viable option such as Rhodes Grass. Due to its unlimited benefits and miraculous features, Rhodes grass replaces various other options when the aim is to select a long-term feeding source for the animals. Plus, the easy cultivation and storage are what makes Rhodes grass ideal for feeding your animals and ensure available feeding stock round the year. Let’s discuss how Rhodes grass replaces other feeding options and why it is considered an important part of animal feed.
Some crops are ideal for the winter season and the others prove a wise option for summer or spring season. But the reason for Rhodes grass’s popularity amongst farmers and cattle owners is that it is an evergreen crop that can be cultivated at any time of the year. Since you are not bound to cultivate Rhodes grass at any specific time of the year, you can gracefully fulfill your requirements for animal feeds.

Rhodes Grass Uses

Since each plant – used for animal feed – has a limited tolerance for heavy grazing, cattle owners find grazing management difficult. Luckily, Rhodes grass has a high tolerance rate for heavy grazing and therefore it becomes an ideal option to consider for your animal’s pasturing needs. Due to the high tolerance of Rhodes grass, you can manage the grazing needs of your animals and allocate food strategically for the whole year.

The problem with other plants is that they are not very tall in terms of size and can be consumed more quickly. With a size about 1.5 to 2 feet, Rhodes grass allows you to feed your animals with less quantity in comparison to other feeding options. The length feature of Rhodes grass solves many of your animal feeding challenges and you can smartly manage your farming duties.
As the demographics change, the level of salt in the land also varies by increasing the challenges of farmers and cattle owners especially those that grow feeding plants at their farmhouse. One of the reasons for recommending Rhodes grass is its tolerance level against salted land as it can be cultivated in an area having a higher amount of salt. If by any chance, you work at a land having higher salt intensity, you can confidently select Rhodes grass as your animal feeding option.
One of the problems of farmers and cattle owners is a dry season where water is in shortage and they fail to meet their irrigation requirements. In such times of drought and cultivation difficulties, Rhodes grass becomes the only option of everyone with its miraculous features of growing in a (nearly) dry land.

While feeding the animals, the biggest concern of every owner is to keep them in good condition. So, the plant that they’re serving as an animal feeding option, should be easily digestible. And this is one of the reasons that Rhodes grass is widely accepted as an ideal option for animal feeding due to its digestion features.
