Three forage sorghums, Sorghum almurn cv. Crooble, S. bicolor cv. Sugardrip and Sorghum spp. hybrid cv. Zulu, were grown on a predominantly uniform textured, cracking-clay, brigalow soil and grazed at 3 stocking rates, 1.5, 3.0 and 4.5 beasts/ha, for 3 grazing seasons, 1968,1970 and 1971. Drought prevented grazing of the 1969 crop and interfered with productivity in other years.
