- ... The shortage of available forage during mid−summer is considered a major factor limiting the size of beef cowcalf herds in the Northeast. Consequently, using warmseason perennial range grasses as a supplement to existing cool−season grass forage programs is being considered. Animal feeding trials were conducted to assess the forage quality of ‘NY 1145’ big bluestem (Andropogon gerardi Vitman), and ...

- ... Fall-grown tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea, Schreb.) provides a relatively inexpensive forage for winter grazing. Quality and yield of actively growing tall fescue increases when accumulated from August and harvested through time in the early fall. The effect of regrowth age on fall accumulated tall fescue quality has not been evaluated under similar harvest climates and animal performance on sum ...
