Farmers held a love/hate relationship with their tall fescue pasture grasses before the days of MaxQ. They struggled with the realities of grazing livestock:

  • Traditional tall fescue pasture grasses are persistent, yet can be toxic to horses, cattle, sheep and other livestock.
  • Traditional (Kentucky 31) Tall Fescue grass would cause lower weaning rates, poor cattle performance, and low birth rates. MaxQ is the result of many years of research conducted by the University of Georgia, and Ag Research, a New Zealand based company, to find a pasture grass that not only prevented the traditional problems in livestock, but also promoted healthier, more productive cattle.

Cow Grazing MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass PastureTraditional Tall Fescue is the grass farmers love to hate. "It's our main feed and our main problem," some have been heard to say. It is persistent, yet it can be toxic to livestock. Lower conception rates, lower weaning weights and poor cattle performance are typical problems caused by the fungus living inside of fescue grass.

Endophyte-Free Tall Fescue Is Not The Answer

Taking the fungus out does not help because fungus free fescue has poor summer survival. This can lead to rapid stand loss.

MaxQ Tall fescue with it's non-toxic fungus produces excellent weight gains in University grazing studies.

Quick Facts On Converting or Planting MaxQ Tall Fescue

IMPORTANT:

To achieve a successful MaxQ stand, farmers should clear their pastures of all existing fescue in the spring. The following steps will prevent the toxic fescue from blooming and provide a "clean slate" for fall MaxQ establishment:

Optimal MaxQ Seeding Dates:

  • Midwest/Northeast - August/September or March/April*
  • South - September/October/November

*Important Planting Note: The friendly endophytes in MaxQ Tall Fescue have a limited lifespan and must be planted by May 10th of each year to ensure that the plants have active (live) friendly endophytes. For instance if you buy the MaxQ Tall Fescue seeds in the fall they must be planted by May 10th of the following year. We recommend fall planting of MaxQ Tall Fescue seed where possible.

-Soil temperature should be warmer than 55 degrees F at 4" depth. This generally occurs when daytime AIR temps are between 60 and 75 degrees.

Seeding Rates:

  • 20 lbs./acre in tilled seed bed
  • 25 lbs./acre in no-till seed bed

Testimonials From Farmers & Ranchers About MaxQ Tall Fescue Grass

MaxQ is a proven success both in the research lab and in the field. Test plantings occurred all over the southeast with farmers standing in line to give their opinion of this exciting time in the livestock industry. MaxQ is still performing and is a best seller as farmers and rancher alike switch their pastures from toxic tall fescue to MaxQ. See the testimonials listed below.

"MaxQ is the best of all pasture products out there. It combines the best fescue grass with the new toxin-free endophyte to create the most effective product, yet."

-Mr. "Curly" Cook, president of the Georgia Cattleman's Association

"MaxQ produces a very high return on investment with minimal preparation work. We sprayed the resident fescue and planted millet over what was left to smother it out. We were able to graze the millet over the summer, so we lost no time. I feel certain we will more than regain the cost of switching over to MaxQ. I jumped at the chance to be a part of the test plantings."

-Mr. Rozier Wingate, participating farmer in MaxQ test planting

“I’m determined to get rid of all the Kentucky 31 in my fields,” said Ron Locke, who is in his fourth season of systematically killing off 25-acre swaths of the old Kentucky 31 across his 400-acre cattle farm in Long Lane, Missouri. He breeds cattle, develops Black Angus bulls and is adamant about his grassland renovation. “The vast majority of our forage in Southwest Missouri is Kentucky 31 and it’s causing big economic losses across the state,” said Locke, who follows a recommended spray, smother, spray procedure to eradicate his old fescue.

- Ron Locke, Cattle Breeder in Long Lane, Missouri.

“Eight years later, this grass is just as green, tolerant and persistent as the first day my cattle grazed it,” explained Hunt, who plans to replace 200 acres of pastureland with the healthy MaxQ tall fescue grass variety.

- Whitey Hunt, Cattle Farmer, Madison, Georgia
