- ... 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 ...

- ... Grass tetany is a disease affecting cattle, sheep, and goats when limited amounts of ultilizable Mg are available. Genetic and environmental considerations on forage Mg are critical if agronomists are to provide forages with low tetany potential. Two genotypes of tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) that differed in inherent Mg concentration were grown in controlled environments to determine ...
