Two sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) varieties (SG1& SG2), with the former showing higher grain and total DM yield, but also increased tannin contents compared to the latter, and one soybean (Glycine max (L.) Merr.) variety (INCASOY-35) were sown, harvested (at pasty grain state), chopped and ensiled (CIAP, Cuba). Silages were made in following combinations: either SG1or SG2combined with soybean in two proportions (0.4 and 0.6). All silages were prepared with or without molasses (3.5% of fresh material) and Lactobacillus sp. as inoculant (3 × 105colony forming units/g). Silage quality parameters included pH, ammonia, lactate, acetate, butyrate and water soluble carbohydrates content. Further, both fresh and ensiled materials were incubated in vitro with buffered rumen fluid to study the fermentation characteristics. Silage of a good quality could be produced with both sorghum varieties alone, but combined silages showed improved quality compared to soybean silage (p
