So a quick Google search yielded a few things..first would have to be cut young before it matures or you get woodsy stems much like straw and loss of nutrients. Second depending on when its harvested will depend on nutritional value. One poster said livestock won't eat it..including goats. But does not say if that is once over grown or cut young. I would think it would be prudent to have it tested for nutrients before you commit to it. Then if you can buy a single bale to see what your goats think of it.
