Publication Update: Grazing Alfalfa

Grants and Contracts Details


Originally produced by the Certified Alfalfa Seed Council in the late 1980’s, Grazing Alfalfa aims to provide producers with a comprehensive guide to utilizing alfalfa as a standing forage crop. Topics covered in this publication include some recent history of the crop, growth and management, and integration into beef, dairy, sheep and horse operations. Over 30 years old and with no equivalent national publication available, this publication desperately needs updating and the University of Kentucky is uniquely qualified to complete the update. UK has been performing grazing tolerance trials on alfalfa and other legumes for more than 20 years and has one of the largest forage variety testing programs in the country. Kentucky producers across the state successfully grow and graze alfalfa and have a close working relationship with the county extension offices and the three Forage Extension Specialists in the state.
