Festulolium works great if you get the right kind. there are many different crosses.... tall fescue by perennial ryegrass, tall fescue by italian ryegrass, meadow fescue by perennial ryegrass, etc...

the meadow fescue by perennial is softer and higher forage quality. the tall fescue types are a lot like tall fescue (high yielding, tough, etc...)

Tennesse is to far south and I don't think Festuloliums will work very well there. if you do try it, be sure not to cut/graze too short the first year (leave at least 5 inches). festuloliums need to tiller out to survive and if you cut to short they can't tiller.

thats some of what i've seen.
