"MSM" plus "nutrition" gets you several thousand hits when typed into a search
engine. I also noticed containers of "MSM" are generally sitting on the shelf at
the horse feed centers. I didn't check the cost, but it wouldn't surprise me to
find it a tenth the price of any MLM scheme. It seems to just be a food

Several horse people have told me that they are wary of fescue. It seems fescue
sometimes develops a mold that either sickens or kills their animals. I've never
actually seen any moldy fescue and honestly don't know if it is even visible.
However, I hope to one day get some Brix tests on a moldy pasture. My thought is
that it will (should) be down around 4-6 Brix. Excellent-rated grasses (barley,
wheat, alfalfa, oats, rye, etc.) should be 18-22 Brix.
I can tell you that when I visit Amish farms I sample their pasture grasses and
chew on them to get an idea of their overall crop quality. Cows and horses are
like people: they go to the sweetest available food. If your client's lawn
grasses taste good, they probably are good.
