Rustler Forage Tall Fescue

Large, soft leaves and a sturdy crown provide a highly palatable forage that's resistant to over-grazing and is endophyte free.

Rustler Tall Fescue (Festuca arundinacea) provides abundant forage for many classes of livestock. Its excellent drought tolerance can extend the spring-summer grazing season. Rustler works well in a monoculture and in mixtures with other forages.

Rustler features an extensive fibrous root system. This root system helps stabilize soil by reducing density and improving structure. It also provides improved water infiltration in the soil which can prevent soil erosion caused by water runoff.
