    Description:

    “Native grasses can be useful when grazing your cattle through the summer months,” says Patrick Davis MU Extension Livestock Field Specialist. Native grasses provide adequate forage quality and quantity for stocker cattle to gain approximately 2 lbs. daily. In addition, these grasses grow more efficiently during the summer months on less water and fertility resulting in higher stocking rates and better performance than typically grazed cool season grasses. Also moving cattle to native grass pastures during the summer reduces the consumption of ergovaline, which is associated with fescue toxicosis symptoms, resulting in healthier better performing cattle.
    Since native grasses are beneficial to cattle grazing during the summer, MU Extension is cooperating with NRCS, Missouri Department of Conservation, and Quails Forever to provide a pasture tour to learn more about cattle grazing native grasses. This Partners in Pasture tour will be held on July 24th at the Wah’Kon-Tah Prairie near El Dorado Springs, Mo. beginning at 5:30 p.m.
    People from each of the partnering organizations will be available to provide discussion and answer questions related to grazing native grasses. Topics of discussion will include:
    • Patch burn grazing as a forage management tool for cattle and wildlife on Wah’Kon-Tah Prairie.
    • Practical cattle grazing management and performance on native pastures.
    As part of the tour, there will be a potluck meal so bring you favorite dish. Missouri Department of Conservation will provide hamburgers for the tour.

    You may also find more information on how to improve your grasslands at https://extension2.missouri.edu/programs/nrcs-mu-grasslands-project.
