This publication will help you match a forage species and management plan to the needs of your operation. It also explains a problem that is a big challenge for many Missouri cattle producers: fescue toxicosis. If you are looking for an alternative to fescue, this publication has a long list of forages adapted to Missouri and discusses ways to renovate your pasture. A forage calendar provides a month-to-month synopsis of alfalfa management. You will also learn of recent advancements in hay storage and protection.
