I suggest you learn to live with medusa. I have worked with controlling medusa since the 1950's, starting with burning  
(McKell, C.M., A.M. Wilson, and B.L. Kay. 1962.  
Effective burning of rangelands infested with  
medusahead. Weeds 10:125-131.). Medusa is not going away! The definitive study that will help us to live with it is  
Lusk, W.C., M.B. Jones, P.J. Torell, and C.M. McKell.  
1961. Medusahead palatability. J Range Management  
14:248-251. This showed medusa is just another green grass and is good feed. Living with it means grazing it green, not dry. Just be glad you don't have goatgrass yet. It appears to be even worse as dry feed!
