Pastures in Iowa consist mostly of cool-season grasses. A combination of warm-season grass and cool-season grass would improve overall efficiency of forage growth available for livestock production. The addition of legumes can improve the overall efficiency of pastures because the legumes in the warm-season grass mixtures can help to improve forage quality and reduce the nitrogen fertilizer needed.
