Getting To Know Grass

Ive done a fair amount of reading on the subject of grass, not the kind you smoke-geeze.  What are the best grass species to grow?  What is the best time to sew?  How does a specific specie perform at different times of the year?  All good questions you should be asking yourself, if you are into farming grass.  Really, it is a mindset, a belief, a different paradigm, you will need to admit it and start calling yourself a grass farmer.  To grow cows, pigs, sheep, goats, horses, donkeys-whatever, you will need to grow grass, it really is that simple-in concept.  I cannot safely say that I have this thing figured out yet.  I am still working on it.  TYo help you work on it, you can read this article, but keep in mind that we live in Missouri.  This information may not apply to your neck of the woods, but use this as a spring board to get you thinking in the right direction.  Let me know what your thoughts or ideas are.

We have a vendor at one of our local farmers markets who produces grass-fed beef; it tastes fantastic, much better than corn-fed and is completely organic and sustainable. Thanks for your post!
