    I am in the process of converting a row crop farm to pasture and growing our herd, you know inch by inch. Anyway as I plant a small grain nurse crop and remove it and before pasture plants are thriving we get a flush of foxtail which is warm season grass, I have found it to be very desired forage, and has proven to be a valuable resource, also grazing off the tall foxtail allows sun light thru to the very small planted pasture mix. The past 2 years this has been a blessing in desguise for summer grazing and exciting to see cool season grasses jump out in front of foxtail, and if there is bare spots the fox tail fills the gap while cool season grasses get stronger.
