    15 acres of stockpiled fescue in two pastures, 5 and 10 ac split. I understand the reccomended practice is to strip graze it. My question, for those of you who stockpile- is strip grazing worth the extra effort? The pastures are relatively remote and I'll have to use a battery based charger...

    Speaking of Missouri and pastures...

    Any thoughts on whether there might be higher than normal levels of endophyte in the fescue this fall? Maybe related to coming back so quickly from the drought stress? Several herds in the area are showing late calves, thick placentas, etc, and just about every cow I see (black, red, or white)...

    Anybody have any experience with "Excede" from Pfizer? As far as I can tell, it's a broad spectrum Cephalosporin with a seven day activity from a single injection, given SQ in the ear. Dosage is about like Micotil. Lee

    Pairs next to a river

    Looking at some lease ground. It's river bottom with pretty good fences except no fence on the river side. River floods every couple of years so it's probably not practical to have a fence there. It's a good sized river (Merremac), not a creek. Any experiences or watch outs running pairs in...
