Oakdon is suited to summer dry conditions within dairy and sheep, deer and cattle finishing systems. Within a mix, Oakdon can be used 50:50 with Hummer tall fescue, improving the palatability and insect tolerance. Oakdon is also good as a grass base with Relish red clover. Growing from mid-September, Oakdon peaks its spring growth in late October. From summer, this fescue has a leafy stay green growth phase, continuing to be productive into autumn. Contact your local PGG Wrightson store or Technical Field Representative for further information and availability.
