      The “native” orchard grass (since orchard grass never is native, but may have volunteered to come into the pasture I keep putting it in quotation marks; many people refer to the volunteering kind as being native) is one of the highest yielding grass species. It is also quite drought resistant. Sheep eat it and tend to not graze it too short. when plants are at the 2- to 3-leaf stage. Grasses usually reach this stage 1 to 4 weeks after germination, depending on the species. Germination time (shown below) can sometimes help determine grass type. 2 PASTURE GRASSES 3 Ryegrass Orchardgrass Tall fescue Timothy Kentucky bluegrass Quackgrass Smooth bromegrass Creeping foxtail Reed.

    Major sod forming grasses are Kentucky bluegrass, smooth bromegrass and reed canary grass. Kentucky bluegrass is commonly used in many sheep pastures. This grass is more traffic tolerant than most grasses. It is very high in forage quality and very palatable. It is more drought and flood tolerant than many grass species. One criterion for selecting species is their ability to supply forage when it is needed (Tables ). Perennials have different periods of plant growth and dif-ferent nutritional value and palatability during their growing season and dormant periods. Most cool-season native and introduced grasses can provide forage in.

    In this book the main grasses and legumes are reviewed. Detailed attention is paid to the classification, taxonomy, and distribution of these pasture and fodder plants as well as to the environmental aspects, cultivation, nutritive value, and reproduction. Only tropical grasses and legumes are considered, and they are understood as plants originating and grown or cultivated in the tropics. Sown pastures may be grass alone, mixed grass and legume, or pure legume. A pure grass pasture is usually preferred in situations where land is limited and/or very valuable as in dairy farms near to urban areas. Usually good herbage yields are obtained from pure grass pastures heavily fertilized with nitrogen, irrigated and cut.

Grasses. Grasses make up the forage base in hay fields and pastures across Arkansas and include common species such as tall fescue, bermudagrass, and ryegrass. Woody plants are useful, but oak brush in pasture is much less valuable than oak. forage plants for nutrients, moisture, sunlight, and space, and lower pasture productivity.

Weeds are generally not eaten by grazing animals, but forages surrounding the weeds are utilized. This situation provides weeds with better growing conditions with no or minimum competition from the useful forage plants. Suggested pasture mixtures.

portion of pasture is grazed at a time while the remainder of the pasture “rests.” To accomplish this, pastures are subdivided into smaller areas (referred to as paddocks) and live-stock are moved from one paddock to another.

Welcome to Forage & Pasture Management. Due to the differences in soil types, precipitation amounts, and temperature gradients in Oklahoma, many forage species are managed for pasture and hay. There are approximately 20 different grass and legume species grown that warrant individual attention.Most forage production is obtained when blue panicum is managed as a pasture plant.

It grows on clay loam soils in areas 2 through 10 and is a perennial, warm, introduced grass that provides good grazing for wildlife and livestock.Warm-Season Perennial Grasses. These grasses tend to be more drought tolerant plants, that produce forage between April and October.

Little to no forage is produced outside of these dates. These forages have the potential to provide hay and grazing during the summer, when cool-season grasses are less productive due to drought and heat.
