Abstract

The main goal of pasture management is to balance forage supply with livestock requirements. By establishing warm-season grasses in conjunction with cool-season pastures, the overall efficiency of forage growth is improved for livestock production. Legume establishment in these pastures can enhance the overall efficiency of the pastures because the addition of legumes to the warm-season grass mixtures can help to improve forage quality and reduce the amount of nitrogen fertilizer that is needed.
