RFV vs. RFQ on Three WICST Forage Systems

Graphical comparisons of RFV (relative feed value) vs. RFQ (relative forage quality) are shown for a conventional direct-seeded alfalfa system, an organic oatlage-alfalfa companion seeded system, and a mixed cool-season grass/legume pasture under managed grazing.  Data is from 2003-2010 and is the seasonal average from 4 reps/forage type/year.
