I'm in VA. Last time I tried making molasses the weather turned dry about the time it came to harvesting the stalks and there was no juice in them.

The price would depend on condition, but note they are not easy to find, I live in sorghum country and rarely see any for sale.
It has been along time since I helped my grand parents make any.

Youd better look for a good operating corn binder WITH a conveyor attached to it, as I have, to cut
your sorgum, and a hay rack with front and back frames to hold the bundles onto the wagon . That
will take out 1/2 the fieldwork at least.

Here is a link to our set-up. It turns the mill "backwards," so you have to switch the plates (at least on our model) around to make it work. It's a *bit* too fast, but it chews right through heavy stalks. There's also a link to a video of it in operation.
