GRAZING MANAGEMENT - Adding clover and warm-season grasses to fescue pastures has helped Michael Jones minimize the effect of endophyte-infected fescue. “Grazing these additions in summer helps keep the cows from over-heating from the infected fescue,” he says. Jones utilizes a management-intensive grazing system on his North Carolina farm, and he’s added clover and native warmseason grasses such as eastern gammagrass to his pastures. The forages in these photos will be grazed until the last week of August when the cows will be removed. The pastures are then rested until late fall or early winter when the cows are brought back for grazing stockpiled forage.
