I have read an ad for "max q" seed which states it is safe for broodmares and just wondering if anyone has an unbiased opinion this. I had heard that there is no such thing as safe fescue as it all will eventually become infected with the endophyte if grown next to infected fields. Rates of field infection in Virginia are as high as 90% I think.... so is this a new strain that will not become infected?
Help please :shock: as I have limited pasture and would love to be able to leave my mares out grazing until term if possible.
