  • Legume options should be considered for grazing

    Alfalfa is a high quality, high yielding, and perennial legume and is incredibly versatile under proper management. It can be grown in pure stands or mixtures and can be the best choice for a grass-legume grazing. There are numerous grazing tolerant varieties now available.
    Red clover is easy to establish, high yielding, high quality and readily grows in a variety of soils. It provides good summer growth, but is not as drought tolerant as alfalfa. Its main disadvantage is it is short-lived and persists for an average of only two winters.
