    Warm-season grasses provide good quality, actively growing forage during the hot summer when cool-season grasses and many legumes are dormant or unproductive. A forage program that includes both warm-season and cool-season grass pastures will provide a more constant forage supply over the growing season. Typical perennial warm-season grasses. Approximate distribution of available forage (dry lbs./acre) of tall fescue and tall fescue that has been stockpiled for deferred grazing. A substantial flush of tall fescue growth will occur in the fall with sufficient moisture and an application of up to 60 lbs. of N per acre (Figure 2).

Manufacturer Video. Videos for related products. In reference to forage tall fescue, soft-leaved refers to the softer edges of the leaf blades. Typically tall fescue leaf blade edges are very rough and can cause abrasions or cuts if running fingers (or tongues in the case of livestock) down the sides of the blade.

      Continue grazing stockpiled tall fescue if available. Assess grass stands. If thin, consider frost seeding clover ( lb/A red + lb/A ladino white clover. On pastures with lower fertility, consider adding lb/A annual lespedeza with the clover seed. Sign up for shared use drills for spring renovation. Service and calibrate no-till drills. AUBURN UNIVERSITY, Ala.— The minds that brought you Southern Forages have teamed up yet again—writing The Wonder Grass, a comprehensive new book on tall fescue. Retired Alabama Extension forage agronomist Don Ball and his colleagues Carl Hoveland and Garry Lacefield explore how a few acres of grass, first found in eastern Kentucky, became the most .

All You Need to Know About Tall Fescue Tall fescue is valued for its adaptability to a wide range of climates and its tolerances for cold, heat, drought and shade. In its preferred growing zones, tall fescue provides lawn owners with outstanding.

Research from across the southeast has shown that, other than KY 31 toxic tall fescue, most all forage species can provide forage for 2 lb/day gain. In general, cattle grazing legumes will gain more than if they graze grasses, and annuals will produce slightly more gain than perennials.

seeding tall fescue with a forage legume. Seeding rates for turf establishment are very high in order to obtain a dense, even turf, usually pounds per acre.

In mixtures with other seed for critical area treatment work, the tall fescue component is typically. Kentucky’s forage base is composed of cool-season grasses and legumes.

Tall fescue, orchardgrass, timothy, and bluegrass occupy the vast majority of our forage land, with Kentucky 31 tall fescue occupying the largest number of acres (Figure ). Clovers (red, ladino, white) (Figure ) are by far the dominant legumesFile Size: KB. Tall fescue has been evaluated to a limited extent for growing or backgrounding beef animals.

A large portion of the research work has compared tall fescue with other species. The chemical composition of the tall fescue forage is affected to a large extent by the grazing pressure used.

From its origins in Europe, its unlikely beginnings in the U.S., the controversy surrounding its initial release and issues with fescue toxicosis, The Wonder Grass is a fascinating examination of the history and modem uses of forage tall fescue.

The book was written by former Auburn University professor Don Ball, former University of Kentucky professor Garry Lacefield.

Tall Fescue as a Weed Cultural Control. Most turfgrasses are difficult to control within another turfgrass. Therefore, turf managers should select clean seed or vegetative sources for establishment, use an adapted turfgrass species and cultivar for their location, and use proper mowing and fertilization techniques to maintain a dense, actively growing, desired turf.

But keep this in mind: Grasses don’t just thrive on their own. They need to be managed correctly. Cattle are HARD on grasses especially new sprigs of baby grass seedlings. Spring pasture management is the key to grazing season success long term. So, treat your grasses right when getting pastures ready for spring grazing.

Hummer is Agricom's new summer active tall fescue. It has shown excellent persistence and maintains its density in the sward.

The sod forming characteristics make Hummer easier to manage compared to older tall fescue cultivars. Hummers was selected for its fine soft leaves, high tiller density, persistence and high yielding characteristic. From our early childhoods, we instinctively come to think of grass in happy, positive terms: grass surfaces can be platforms for children’s games, summer parties or escapes away from urban landscapes.

Kentu known in the seed industry as KY or K, helped tall fescue grasses transition from livestock pasture grasses to lush, durable, manicured lawns.

It is valued for easy establishment, drought resistance and improved heat tolerance over many other tall fescue. Novel endophytes are a patented technology; therefore, the current commodity approach of the tall fescue seed industry of growing and selling seed will need to be adjusted to account for intellectual property protection of the novel by: 4.

mance was compared when grazing orchardgrass and endo-phyte-infected tall fescue (Table 1). Both cows and calves gained approximately one-half pound more per day on orchardgrass than on tall fescue. Conception rate of the cows was 18 per-centage points higher on the orchardgrass pastures.

A year study in Virginia showed liveweight gain per ani. Because of its cold tolerance, stockpiled fescue can provide palatable forage through the winter.

Stockpiled tall fescue maintains green color and forage quality late into the winter and can be grazed until March.
