Description

Kentucky is a FORAGE state with approximately one-half of the total farmland occupied by forage grasses and legumes. We are very fortunate that we can grow many different species successfully. We have the natural resources and climate to grow most cool-season and warm-season species. We are fortunate that we usually have a relatively long growing season. We are usually blessed with rain, especially in spring (2007 was a major exception) with our annual rainfall approximately fifty inches. We are also fortunate that we have some of the absolute best forage-livestock producers in the World.
