Anyone planted this?
How are your results?
Can you broadcast before rain?

I have. About 5 years ago. It did great for about 3 years. Then the native fescue, bluegrass, clover and other native plants began to dominate.

There are better varieties now but I have not tried them.

Did you graze cattle on it or make hay? I'm also curious about this and some other varieties. Educate me! :lol2:

It was grazed. Endophyte free fescue is not as promising as endophyte friendly fescue which harbors a strain fungi that is harmless to cattle.
