Anyone that ranches knows that its mainly about growing the best nutritious grass that the cows can then turn into quality beef. This year we had excellent rains here in East Texas and averaged 6 rolls to the acre of quality hay.

After the rains this year, this bottom-land only needs the Texas sun to produce high protein quality hay.

that's a peaceful panorama, but I know it takes hard work to make it look like that!

what grass or grasses are used to achieve a quality finished hay?

alfalfa and clover were what we had on the farm here in ohio, but Texas might be different?

really nice pic.

...

Thanks. In East Texas, we use a lot of Bermuda and Bahia grasses. That field is Pensacola Bahia. It is bottom-land and gets creek overflow two or three times a year and so it is all natural fertilization. It produces so much hay, I only cut it once a year and that coupled with no grazing and overflows completely eliminates the need for any artificial chemicals.
