  • 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.

    The three senior players on LaRue County High School’s basketball team complement each other’s strengths well, according to head coach Paul Childress.
