Sorghum's are susceptible to prussic acid after frost, and it is very toxic and can be fatal. I would be careful of this.
The beans were probably chemically defoliated to harvest, so would be leery of this as well. I would like to see the fields with a good winter cover crop of some sort- oats, rye, etc.
