Cy, I've been thinking of doing the same thing the alfalfa I have remaining. What grass are you thinking to best match your growth/cut cycle? I've got Orchard in some, but it doesn't keep up with the alfalfa's growth during the summers.
Ibe started adding more fescue useing mix that had 20% along with Perenial Ryegrass,FESTOLIUM,orchard grass and som Italian ryegrass but I think I’ll have. Custom mix made or mix myself and bump up the fescue it grows better in mid summer heat.
Maybe go 50% Each fescue/ orchard grass
or 33% each Fescue,orchard,meadow brome
I will have to do the math to get % correct for different seed sizes
know a couple guy that jut went Alf/ Fecue and Said high yields but said harder drying then brome or orchard.
im after tonnage and would like to get another ton a acre as it would be more profitable.Biggest cost here is land so if I can push another ton a acre out of it my cot per ton will be less
