Sorghum is a plant that grows in a tall stalk.  It produces a grain similar to wheat, corn, and oats. Sorghum is referred to as a cereal grass.  The grains or kernels it produces are known as cereal grains. Sorghum can be milled or ground up to make flour. The flour can be used to make bread and pasta.  Sorghum is typically used to feed livestock during the winter months.
