    Is anyone in need of hay in the south

    Alabama, East Tennesse, Georgia and North Carolina would be a good place to sell hay right now. Long drive though

    At what temps Highs & Lows will fescue dominate bermuda?

    I ask because I just put out 100# of urea per acre on bermuda/fescue pastures 10 days ago. I'm just starting to get a few nights in the 50's. Low of 54 tonight. I wanted as much push for my fescue as possible.

    At what temps Highs & Lows will fescue dominate bermuda?

    I've always heard that fescue will dominate bermuda when the low temps get in the 50's. Is this pretty accurate?

    I am feeding a lot of Tifton 44 hay...

    It does not have a viable seed, but I can swear that where I fed T44 I've got bermuda growing around it. Now I cut hay from several different places so I could have got it mixed up. Can T44, a grass that does not produce viable seed, grow from a bales after it has set in a roll for 150 days...

    8.3 bales of hay per acre!!!

    On this tifton 44 hay medow, I usually get mid 60's in TDN and 14-15% protein. It was older growth this time, (8 weeks) and I lost a lot of protein.

    Santa Gertrudis

    I'm not saying this cause I run red angus, but many Gert breeders are using redangus to create a composite with the gerts.

    Feed no hay through an Arkansas winter - Can it be done?

    It can be done with adequate winter pasture, stockpiling of grasses, proper fertilization, segmented pastures and adequate rain. I would reccomend moving your calving season to March-April to make sure calves are hitting the ground at green up. Phrao cattle has done some research in mob...

    8.3 bales of hay per acre!!!

    I had about 27 acres of land that was water locked by the large amounts of rainfall that we got in Arkansas this June. I had Tifton 44 sprigged on this meadow several years ago and have been getting lots of quality hay on it. 15% protein and low 60s on TDN. Really good numbers if it's cut...

    Pic of old cow. What does she tell you?

    She's the best kind of cow. She's the kind that make money. You could sell her this fall, get $550 + for the calf and get $450 for the cow. I wish I could buy 100 like her and double my money on every one of them.

    I grew up thinking bermuda was the king of warm season grass

    but my cows prefer crab and dallis grass to bermuda. I know that bermuda is much easier to make hay with, but I didn't know cows would completely eat crab grass to the ground when bermuda is knee high. What gives? Crab grass is higher in protein; maybe that's it.

    Knee high bermuda grass!

    My wife really thinks I'm an idiot when I inspect cow stools. "What can I say, I'm a scientist," I tell her.

    Knee high bermuda grass!

    I started leasing this property to start a registered red angus herd. It started out as just a field full of black of the most stubborn weed in the world. I did not plant the bermuda or the crab grass. Like most pastures, it was already there in small quanities. I just...

    Knee high bermuda grass!

    No, I'm just going to put cows with calves on it. You should have seen the soft stools the day after I changed pastures. All calves were making soft creamy green baby poop piles.

    Knee high bermuda grass!

    More grass than I've ever had and I'm still behind normal on rainfall. I've got knee high bermuda and crab grass in one of my three 20 acre pastures. I guess it's not how much rain but the timely distribution of it. :D

    What kind of grass is this?

    Dallis does make good forage, but it is hard to get it to dry out when cutting it for hay. It takes three times as long to dry it out as does bermuda.
