Nutritious For Pets

Sorghum isn’t just a gmo and gluten-free grain ingredient for pets, it’s also incredibly nutritious. It’s comparable to corn with higher protein and slightly lower fat content. Plus it’s easier to digest when compared to other grains.

Brands Using Sorghum

Although this niche market is relatively small compared to larger livestock markets, sorghum provides a cost-competitive and nutritious feed ingredient for pet food companies who are using the grain for carbohydrate blends in dog and cat foods. Sorghum is now being utilized by 15 pet food companies in more than 130 products.

Birds

Sorghum has a long-standing history of use in bird seed rations. The grain is unprocessed and used whole in bird seed mixtures. Typically, sorghum is favored by larger bird breeds. Sorghum has also become popular among game birds, namely quail and pheasants. Boasting health benefits for birds, the large red or white sorghum grain provides a high-quality ingredient for bird seed companies. Ongoing research is exploring sorghum’s use in the bird seed industry.
