Amazing Grazing workshop held

Most pastures in this area are comprised of Kentucky 31 Fescue grass. When the weather is cool and we have enough moisture, this is a good grass to have. When it turns hot and dry in the summer, fescue slows down and can even die back. Not so good for grazing livestock.One fescue alternative for cattle producers is to grow a warm season annual to graze cattle during the hot summer months.
