ABSTRACT
The article reports on a study on fescue toxicosis which shows that the detrimental effects of fescue's symbiotic partner lasts a lot longer. It states that beef producers have been handling cattle on endophyte-infected tall fescue for well over half a century and have improved management strategies to palliate its negative effects. Moreover, the findings have indicated a noticeable increase and stabilization of blood flows in steers after being removed from endophyte-infected pastures. INSET: The fescue problem keeps getting bigger.
