Mine love fescue. Fescue just doesn't do well in the warmer, dry months.

Again, the pasture has decent stand of grass & clover as it is now. I'm actually getting the no till drill tomorrow. Will it damage the currents grasses & clover running it through now or not?
Thanks

Sure it will do some damage....but scarring the surface Will "renovate" a bit too, opening the ground to let moisture penitrate and a little aeration. A minus and a plus.

Looks like it might be raining when I have the drill. Not ever having used one--can I run it in the rain as long as it's not a mud hole or too wet?

Well I got a half drilled with the no till and then it started raining too hard to continue. I can't do it tomorrow and Wednesday is the last day I have it before I have to return it. How wet it is too wet to use that no till?

Wet (to a certain extent) is better than dry on an established pasture. Run it about 50 ft or so, stop the tractor and check the pasture and equipment to see if it's running right. You'll also want to check your seed depth as change in moisture will effect that.
