The Alliance for Grassland Renewal
The Mission of the Alliance for Grassland Renewal is to reduce or eliminate the negative effects of toxic tall fescue on the livestock forage industry through education and outreach, industry led quality control standards, and incentives, while pursuing new technologies and techniques.
EDUCATIONAL workshops for farmers to understand both the science and practical management of novel tall fescue varieties.
Rigorous QUALITY TESTING and certifying of commercial products, ensuring availability of live, viable endophyte in the highest quality seed.
INCENTIVE PROGRAMS to assist farmers in the costly but beneficial transition from toxic to novel tall fescue.

- Pasture Research Illustrates Benefits of Endophytes to Grass and AnimalIntroduction: Demonstrating the benefit of non-toxic endophyte-infected pasture grasses on animal performance is well documented and is equal to that of non-infected tall fescue. However, it is more difficult to demonstrate that which the endophyte imparts on the grass. ResearchContinue reading “Pasture Research Illustrates Benefits of Endophytes to Grass and Animal”
- Triple Creek Journal: We are using a variety of hay feeding methods this year.As winter approaches we continue to be extremely dry. We have not had more than a few tenths of an inch of rain at a time since late September, and it was already dry then.
