How do you harvest sorghum?

How do you harvest sorghum is a commonly asked question since the seed heads are at the top of the plant.

Using bean head to combine sorghum.

 

As you can see, we are able to use our bean head attached to the combine to get the job done.  The rest of the grassy plant is left standing in the field after the seed head is removed until it is tilled under.  The seed is sold to a company in Des Moines for bird seed.
