Fertilizer, perennial grass, forage quality, crude protein, total digestible nutrients
In 2019 and 2021, a tall fescue fertility study was conducted at the K-State Experiment Station near Columbus, KS. The purpose of the study was to determine the effect of summer fertilization on forage quality and quantity in stockpiled fescue. If a producer can stockpile high-quality forage for late fall and early winter grazing, protein supplementation may not be necessary for fall calving cows.
