BMR Gene 6 is the most pronounced of the BMR Genes. For your cows, this means higher digestibility, higher energy, higher intake and higher production versus Non BMR and BMR 12.
BMR Gene 6 Highlights
Forage Sorghum – Silage, Haylage (Boot Stage)
AF 7401, 7101, 7201, 7102, 7202 and Silo Pro- Take your pick of these short, medium and long season forage sorghums for top production on tough corn ground! High energy and sugars make fantastic silage for growing heifers, backgrounding calves or milk cows. The 7401, 7102 and 7202 all have the dwarf characteristic for improved standibility.
Sweet Six – The dry stalk characteristic of this SSX make it a great option for faster drying baleage and haylage!
AS 6401- High disease tolerance for lower/wetter areas. Also the fastest starting for late planting.
AS 6501- Harvesting late? This photo period sensitive won’t produce a head until late in the season allowing it to maintain quality.
AS 9301- Dry stalk variety with fast dry down for baleage, haylage, dry hay or grazing!
AS 9302- Similar to 9301 except with the brachytic dwarf characteristic that packs a lot of leaves on a short stalk. Great grazing option!
