FORT SCOTT Fescue grass greens up early in the spring, responds well to fertilizer, and provides lush green growth, making it a popular lawn grass. Its also a popular pasture grass, but the thing that makes it work so well in your lawn can cause it to not work so well with your cow herd.
The Southwind District of K-State Research and Extension would like to remind you to join us on April 4 to learn more about fescue endophytes, their effect on cattle, and how to manage fescue. This program will take place at 6 p.m. at the Moran Community Center, located at 407 N. Cedar St. in Moran, and will feature South-wind Extension District Agent for Livestock Production and Forage Management Christopher Petty, Kansas State University Southeast Area Livestock Specialist Jaymelynn Farney, and Kansas State University Southeast Area Agronomist Doug Shoup.
The meeting is sponsored by Multimin 90 and Ag Choice of Moran. An evening meal will be provided, free of charge, by our sponsors. Pre-registration is required, by March 30 to reserve your meal.
