As I have been getting familar with this wonderful board and all the super people on it, I have noticed several questions about fescue.

I live in South Carolina (Greenville/Spartanburg) area and fescue poisoning is rampant here. Virtually all our fescue has the endophyte.

I watched a lovely mare some years back and her pretty little foal die because of fescue poisoning. It is an image that I will never get out of my mind and one that haunts me to this day. The people that owned this mare just didn't know that fescue poisoning existed. It was so sad mainly because it could of been prevented.

I want everyone to know that Clemson University in our area has done extensive research on fescue poisoning and has a vaccine for it. I just want everyone to be aware of this in case you might need to contact them.

Here is a link to an excellent article:
