Tall Fescue

SF Medallion

mediterranean tall fescue

SF Medallion is a new summer dormant mediterranean tall fescue. It has been selected to produce similar yields to existing types, but with lower NDF and higher ME for increased animal intake and liveweight gain.

It has shown excellent palatability and persistence in Australian trials. It has no endophyte and poses no animal health risks to grazing livestock, including horses and alpacas. SF Medallion is two weeks later flowering than current mediterranean varieties.
