SWAJ Tall Fescue

Outstanding Winterhardiness & Soft-Leaved Palatability


SWAJ is a Nordic tall fescue bred for its winterhardiness; specifically, its tolerance to harsh winter conditions characterized by frost, snow and ice. Selected for soft-leaved palatability and feed quality, SWAJ provides improved digestibility and more pounds of gain. Its ideal maturity provides complimentary timing and blend compatibility with most hay and pasture uses.
