South Carolina peeps - can anyone please recommend the best grass to plant on newly cleared land for good pasture? Looks like that is the route we will be going with our new farm in the Charleston area - not my first choice, but looking necessary so we will be needing to get the pastures going once the land is clear. Thanks in advance!!

I am in Aiken so don't know if the soil is the same there but the only thing people seem to have success with here is Bahailia grass.
