Pasture productivity in Iowa often is limited by low productivity of cool-season grasses during summer. This uneven seasonal distribution of forage production could be improved by including species in pasture systems that perform better under higher temperatures. Warm-season grasses produce most of their growth during summer when cool-season grasses are semi-dormant. By using cool-season and warm-season pastures in a sequential system, it should be possible to improve seasonal productivity.
