I would really like to know the species, I have seen some large groups of fungi before but these were incredible, a solid wall of mushrooms 20 yards long. I went to take some measurements today and the largest specimens I could find had a cap that was 4.2 inches when plane and 5 inches tall. The spore color appeared to be orange brown. I was not able to take a print but I did take a paper towel and wiped some spores off the top of one of the caps.

…Tubaria’s a good candidate.

Maybe, I am not familiar with any Agrocybe species that grow in pasture habitats, these guys were large as well.

Largest has a plane cap that was 3.5 inches across.

Agrocybe maybe?
