Interpretive Summary: A number of updates on research projects conducted within Kentucky concerning tall fescue (Lolium arundinacium) and its symbiotic endophyte (Neotyphodium coenophialum) were presented at the annual SERA-IEG 8 workshop including a number with Forage-Animal Production Research Unit scientist collaborations. These included: 1.) A method for gas chromatographic analysis of gamma-amino butyric acid (GABAZ) in tall fescue herbage, 2.) GABA in herbage of field grown endophyte-free and endophyte-infected tall fescue, and 3.) Performance and physiology of steers grazing toxic tall fescue as influenced by feeding soybean hulls and steroidal implants. For additional detail, the entire meeting report can be viewed at the following website http://animalscience.ag.utk.edu/SERA-IEG8/default.htm
