• Comparison of three tall fescue-based stocker systems 

    Bailey, Neal J., 1974- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2009)
    A two-year study was conducted on tall fescue-based pastures to evaluate three approaches to rotationally stocking stocker calves. Within each year, two sets (a spring set and a fall set) of crossbred steers were stratified ...
  • Elemental concentration changes in soil and stockpiled tall fescue leaves after liming 

    Hamilton, Elizabeth J. (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea Schreb.) is the dominant forage in Missouri and grows primarily on acidic soils that possess little plant available phosphorus (P). Little is known about the effects of lime on the elemental ...
  • Establishment of silvopastoral system into a Missouri hardwood forest 

    Ladyman, Kenneth P., 1976- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    This research was conducted at the University of Missouri Hugo Wurdack Farm located near Cook Station, MO (Crawford County, Section 36, Township 36N, Range 5W). Plots were located on north- or north-east facing slopes. ...
  • Impact of grazing stockpiled tall fescue of lactating beef cows 

    Curtis, LeAnn Elizabeth (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
    Two experiments are described, in which fall-calving cow-calf pairs grazed stockpiled tall fescue at three different endophyte infection levels (20, 51, and 89%) and four forage allowances (2.25, 3.00, 3.75, and 4.50% of ...
  • Missouri's Ultimate Feed Alternative: Ammoniated Tall Fescue 

    Roberts, Craig A. (Craig Arthur); Kallenbach, Robert L. (University of Missouri Extension, 2009-02)
    To stretch short feed supplies, livestock producers could ammoniate low-quality tall fescue hay. Ammoniated hay is hay placed under a tarp and treated with a maximum of 60 pounds of anhydrous ammonia per ton of hay. After ...
  • Phosphorus nutrition in tall fescue: from stockpiling to seed production 

    McClain, William Edward, 1970- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Tall fescue (Festuca arundinacea) is the most important forage for beef production in the Midwest. Stockpiling tall fescue allows producers to extend the grazing season and reduce winter-feeding costs. In Missouri, forages ...
  • Physiological responses of continental (summer-active) and mediterranean (summer-dormant) tall Fescue to cold stress and identification of underlying QTL for fall growth and winter survival 

    Dierking, Ryan M., 1983- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2010)
    We describe three experiments; the first two experiments were conducted in a greenhouse and with the use of cold chambers. The first experiment determined the effect of endophyte (Neotyphodium ceonophialum) presence under ...
  • Recommendations for tree establishment in tall fescue-based silvopasture 

    Houx, James H., 1970- (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2008)
    Silvopasture offers Midwest landowners the opportunity to plant trees in their pastures without significant loss of forage production. However, much of the pasture in the Midwest is dominated by tall fescue (Schedonorus ...
  • Tall Fescue 

    Henning, Jimmy C.; Wheaton, Howell Newman, 1923-; Roberts, Craig A. (Craig Arthur) (University of Missouri Extension, 1993-10)
    Tall fescue is well adapted to the soil and weather conditions of Missouri. It is especially adapted to the hazardous growing conditions of southern Missouri and will produce more forage on acid, wet soils of sandstone and ...
  • Tall fescue seed production alley cropped in a hardwood tree plantation 

    Settle, Thomas A. (Thomas Arthur) (University of Missouri--Columbia, 2007)
    Alley cropping is an agroforestry practice that utilizes the space between rows of trees to produce an alternate crop. Tall fescue demonstrates shade tolerance and may be well suited for the production of certified seed ...
