I don’t know how to complete the assignment or answer the questions, and my professor isn’t helping. And I am currently broke so I can’t pay money for it. I know all the tutors are on here for money, but I hope someone can help me without payment. I know it is a lot to ask; I am in a tight spot right now especially when it, comes to money.

AGN370 Forages Name: Forage/Grazing Stick Estimates In this exercise you will estimate the quantity of forage available in a paddock. Use your textbook and notes to make your decisions. Carrington You want to renovate this pasture to a novel endophyte tall fescue + legume pasture. Explain what you will need and describe your goals. See attached soil test results. To renovate the pasture you must destroy the existing stand, figure out forages for spring and fall seedings, also prevent seedhead production with the existing infected stand of toxic endophyte. Field size estimate: ___________________ ft2 ÷ _________ft2/A = _____ acres Field limitations or problems? (e.g. slope, wet areas, etc.). What are your recommended (see Southern Forages, table 12.1): Seeding rate Seeding date Seed bed preparation Amendments (one time vs annual?) Anticipated problems/solutions Use the formula below to estimate the number of days you could graze four 600 lb steers (i.e. “stockers”) on this paddock. Assume you have 8 pastures (paddocks) of similar productivity. Days = Total lbs Forage/Ac x Ac x % Grazing Efficiency Avg animal Wt. x intake rate in % Body Wt. x animal number NRCS/Missouri Forage and Grasslands Council Grazing Stick Formulas: Days on paddock = Total lbs Forage/Ac X Ac X % Grazing Efficiency Animal Wt.
