I have one low pasture that is extremely wet. I am curious if the low alkaloid type would be a good fit here. I can say that while i can't say that there is none around here as i probably would not recognize it if i saw it, I know that is is one of those things you either like it or hate it. Thoughts appreciated.

have some pretty wet fields around here that are tiled and still not worth crop farming.  I have a love hate relationship with this plant.  Kind of expensive to put out and a bit of slow starter, you may think about throwing some cheap clover into a new seeding.  Plant does extremely well once established in the wet dirt.  Timing of first cut is everything to us.  Made late its no better than bedding, I have proteins as low as four.  Made right the cows eat it well and it is amazing on tonnage.  we get a decent amount of second crop off of it as well and it is beautiful stuff.  We have some horse customers that have to prefer it over our other second cut grass.
