B. WILSON Pasture Specialist Research Station At the Lethbridge Research Station we have been assessing various forage crops for use as irrigated pasture for yearling cattle. Total annual production of forage, length of life of the pasture, ease of management, and average daily gain of the animals were the factors con- sidered. Orchardgrass is the stand- ard with which other forages are compared. Well managed orchardgrass provides an abun- dance of nutritious forage for 100 to 120 days each season. Its main shortcoming is a lack of winterhardiness that limits its use roughly to irrigated land in the winter wheat area of Western Canada. PRODUCTIVE Reed canarygrass has also been very productive, easy to manage, and persistent. It is less palatable than orchard- grass, however, and yearling cattle gained less while graz- ing it because they ate less. Where average daily were two pounds per head for steers on orchardgrass they were 1.7 nounds on reed can- arygrass Reed canarygrass can be used on wet lands where other grasses do not grow well. Creeping red fescue has been disappointing as irrigated pas- ture. The cattle gained well on it in the early part of the sea- son but it was not well utilized in late summer. After two years it became quite weedy. Over the past tv.-o seasons, cattle gains averaged 1.7 pounds per head per day. Pubescent wbeatgrass is us- uallv ready for grazing a week earlier in spring than other grasses and it has been very productive during May and June. Growth almost ceases during the first three weeks of July but resumes after that. Yearlings have made better gains on pubescent than on orchardgrass but the growth of pubescent wheat- grass pastures usually falls off badly after three years of graz- ing. The legumes which have test- ed sainfoin and birdsfoot trefoil. Steers gained more than 2.5 pounds per day on each of these legumes as long as plen- ty of forage was available but management was difficult. Both trefoil and sainfoin re- cover slowly after grazing, with the result that periodic feed shortages occur during the sea- son. On our pastures waste of forage was always high. No bloat occurred with either legume. Of all the forages test- ed orchardgrass is undoubted- ly superior where it is adapted. When well irrigated and heavi- ly fertilized it can carry three yearling cattle for 110 days and produce half a ton of hay as well. Total beef production per acre of orchardgrass has been about 700 pounds.
