Highly productive, winter-hardy, perennial bunch grass with long and slender, bright green, and succulent leaves. Softer-leaved and more palatable than tall fescue. More persistent than perennial ryegrass with equal nutrition but stronger summer production under hot, dry conditions.

 

Best Use:

Long-term pasture mixes or alfalfa companion. Begin grazing at 6-8”and remove animals when the grass is down to 3-4”.

Adaptation:

Grows in cool, moist conditions, and tolerates wet soils with occasional flooding. Can reach 30” tall in rich soil.

Management:

Yield may be less than tall fescue but animal intake / performance should be higher due to increased palatability.

Planting Date:

March-May, Aug. 1-31

Seeding: 20 lbs/acre alone or 6-12 lbs/acre in a mix.

Suggestions:

Include meadow fescue in any mixture for hay or pasture to improve palatability and tonnage.
