  • COLUMN: Grazing management – July to December

     Pasture growth from mid June to mid August slows down greatly. Producers should extend the length of time that pasture fields are rested between grazings and begin to leave more residual leaf area for cool season grasses (mainly fescue and orchardgrass).

    Warm season grasses (annuals and perennials) and deep-rooted legumes such as alfalfa, lespedeza or red clover, can be very useful during this time to rest cool season grass pastures and also to provide a break from the endophyte of infected tall fescue.

  • Some things just don't necessarily follow

     As I listen to various people and ponder statements made, it seems to me that some things just don't necessarily follow from initial statements.

    Take for an example: to help you remember, set up some “memory pegs” or associated ideas. But how in the world will doubling what I am trying to remember going to help me - when remembering is my basic challenge?

    Another goofy (to me) proposal:  if it is on the Internet it much be true, accurate, real. Says who else?  Who is the monitor for accuracy?
