Stockpiled fescue Wright

Stockpiled fescue is one of the most reliable and cost-effective practices for growing winter pasture?  Clip the old summer residue of fescue fields down to a 3” stubble and apply 50-60 lbs/acre of nitrogen fertilizer the first week of September. Let the grass grow until December 1 then graze it instead of feeding hay. Typical yields are 2,000 to 3,000 lbs of forage per acre. Over 98% of University on-farm stockpiled fescue demonstrations have saved producers money over the past 18 years.
