Welcome to Clemson Forage Information

The Clemson Forages program seeks to evaluate the effects of various forage species on stocking rate, animal performance, carcass characteristics and economic returns of forage-fed beef production. In addition, other grazing trials are also evaluating the effects of tall fescue on animal growth rates and reproductive performance of beef cattle.
