  • "So far we love it. I will know more this time next year when the 30 acres we just planted with it and the Brome has been established. The cows prefer it 10 to 1 over the novel endophyte fescue."

  • We seeded Persister last fall and we have taken two good cuttings as of late June. We are leaving it alone for the rest of the season in hopes of dropping seed.

  • Persister bromegrass is a game changer. It provides a more balanced diet than ryegrass because of the effective fiber present.
