Re: RC: Fescue

Fescue grass CAN contain and hold a mold that CAN cause mares to NOT produce
milk.  I also understand that it can cause problems BEFORE the foal is born.  If
you can plant Kentucky Bluegrass WITHOUT fescue, you will be better off.

What part of the country do you live in?  Have you tried questioning your local
SCS office for information and recommendations?
