While this summer’s record-breaking drought has been
tough on cool season grasses and farmers,
other options exist when it comes to
livestock forage. The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission is promoting
its Cooperative Upland habitat Restoration and enhancement program, or CURE.
CURE promotes the creation of small game habitat using native plants, such as
drought-resistant warm season grasses. Warm season grass varieties thrive
during the hottest months of the year and do not require substantial summer
rainfall. For more information, visit www.ncwildlife.org.
