Native Warm-Season Grasses as a Forage in Mississippi: Grazing Management

Publication Number: P2843
View as PDF: P2843.pdf

Native warm-season grasses (NWSG) are indigenous species that were the dominant forage source for roaming buffalo and other grazing animals before European settlement in the United States. These grasses, as their name implies, produce a majority of their aboveground biomass during the warmer months of the year, particularly May through August.
