Meadow Fescues by Barenbrug

Although very popular in Canada, meadow fescue is seldom used in the US. This species deserves a better place in the USA forage market. It grows under cool, moist conditions, tolerating wet and sometimes flooded soils. Once established, it also performs well under drier conditions for making hay or silage. On good soils, meadow fescue surpasses perennial ryegrass in summer production. Meadow fescue is also a good companion to grow with alfalfa.

HDR (High yielding, Digestible and disease Resistant) is a blend of late maturing meadow fescues that were developed so dairy and beef producers could provide high energy grass for their livestock. HDR varieties were selected for high yields, digestibility, and high energy. This blend thrives in the continental climate of North America that is characterized by very hot summers and very cold winters. HDR contains the most disease resistant meadow fescues varieties on the market. These varieties establish quickly, and are a great companion for alfalfa, red clover, and white clover.
