  • Seed fescue or other cool season pasture forages into established fescue (orchardgrass, alfalfa, or clovers).
  • Fertilize established and newly planted cool season pastures. Fall fertility applications (especially lime and phosphorous) help combat warm season grass weeds like broomsedge and foxtail.
  • Plant annual grasses such as ryegrass, wheat or oats. Can be drilled into warm season sods or to freshly tilled fields. Do not plant annuals into fescue to prevent competition and weakening of fescue stand.
  • Finish grazing any warm season forages first and stockpile fescue for late fall/early winter grazing.
  • Be aware of fall laminitis potential- especially in overweight horses.
  • Update vaccinations for your herd.
  • Take inventory of winter feed/hay supply and make plans accordingly.
  • Make improvements to dry lots and known muddy areas now before winter rains arrive.
  • Soil test any areas to be planted in the spring, so lime can be applied to correct pH months in advance.
