With all the negative things related to Kentucky 31 tall fescue, it seems there should be a massive effort to eradicate this plant with fervor. In fact, in 2012 a group named the Alliance for Grassland Renewal was formed to help share knowledge and information related to pasture renovation to replace KY 31 tall fescue infected with the wild-type endophyte to novel endophyte tall fescue. Renovation efforts here have been minimal, but interest is growing. Even with all the animal challenges with this plant, it still possesses characteristics that make it a good forage for grazing operations. It has great persistency, is high yielding with moderate to high quality and handles heavy grazing pressure to name a few. But where it excels is maintaining quality into the winter for use as stockpiled forage to graze.
