Farmers are often frustrated by low hay yields, slow recovery after harvest, poor plant persistence, low plant palatability, and invasion of undesirable pasture plants.  The root of the problem is often a lack of understanding about the characteristics of the plants in their pasture, how they respond to management, and how to manage them optimally.  In this interactive session, we will discuss the agronomic characteristics of a wide range of forage species including: birdsfoot trefoil, alfalfa, red clover, kura clover, white clover, perennial ryegrass, meadow fescue, reed canary grass, Italian ryegrass, smooth bromegrass, orchardgrass, Kentucky bluegrass, and more.  Presented by UVM Agronomist Dan Hudson.
