HDR (High yielding, Digestible, and disease Resistant) meadow fescue is developed for dairy and beef producers who are interested in providing the best energy grass for their livestock.  HDR has varieties that are selected for high yields in the U.S.  HDR is the most digestible and high energy forage grass that can be grown in the continental US that is characterized by very hot summers and very cold winters.  HDR contains Pradel, the most disease resistant meadow fescue variety on the market.

HDR meadow fescue is a “NutriFiber forage“, which aids in providing Highly Digestible, Effective Fiber for use in dairy rations to promote healthy rumens, reduce acidosis, while increasing butterfat tests and supporting high milk production.  Proven to work in University research and on dairy farms across the U.S.

Barenbrug has one of the largest breeding programs for development of meadow fescues in North America and with it they bring to you the most advanced meadow fescue blend on the market.

HDR meadow fescue 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.  Excellent to mix with alfalfa or red clover for high producing dairy herds.

Suggested seeding rates:  Seed 25-30 lbs/acre alone or 6-15 lbs/acre in a mix.

Approx. seeds/lb.:  277,000

Seeding Depth:  Drill ¼” deep in a firm seedbed.

Preferred soils:  Medium to heavy soils, lighter soils with irrigation.

Management suggestions:  May be planted in spring or late summer on a well prepared, firm seedbed.  For interceding into alfalfa, best time is late summer.  Use 25-30 units of N at seeding, 30-40 units of N after each cutting.  Total of 150 units of N/acre/year.  With alfalfa, use a total of 75 units of N/acre/year.  We prefer to use ammonium sulfate to supply our Nitrogen and Sulfur needs.
