Fescue is a low quality forage. So even if you have a lot of it it will not have the nutrient valve of the other forages. Plus there are problems with a fungus that grow in fescue.
" An endophyte is a plant which grows within another plant, in this case a fungus growing within the fescue plant. This fungus, acremonium coenophialum, has been shown to be associated with the occurrence of alkaloids in this species. These alkaloids are toxins that relate to summer slump syndrome and fescue toxicosis. Research has shown that cattle birth weights and weaning weights will be effected negatively with infected fescue hay."
Then to add insult to injury the fescue will choke out the better forages. So I would never knowing sow it for a pasture. Your problem this summer was lack of water not choice of forages. We do not have that happen that often. So I would rather have good forages most of the time with the occasional bad time rather than have poor forages all of the time.
