Veterinarian Lynn Steele grows switchgrass on his farm to feed his hundred head of cattle. He favors the wild-growing grass over other commercial feeds because it’s cheap.
“Even when the price is high [for switchgrass], it’s 4, 5, 6 dollars a pound for seed,” Steele said. “Indian grass and Big Blue Stem 12 and 15 dollars a pound. You get quite a bit of investment there.”
