Drought often causes hay shortages which prompt Texas producers to buy hay from other states to support their livestock. These cool-season grasses can offer more nutritive value than warm-season perennial forages such as bermudagrass or bahiagrass. Feeding success with these forages may tempt us to establish these species for pasture and/or hay production here. However, some cool-season perennial forages used in other parts of the United States are not well adapted to Texas conditions. (2 pages)
