Orchardgrass is a cool-season grass that begins to grow in the spring

 It is often used as forage grass for goats, sheep, cattle, horses, and other livestock

  Animals easily digest this grass, which is an excellent option for silage, hay, and grazing. This grass quickly establishes itself and grows in bunches. 

  Orchardgrass is typically sown during the spring season or late summer. When used for grazing, orchard grass is best sown with plants that provide a nutritional balance, such as legumes. Seeds need to be sown approximately ¼ to ½ inch deep. 

  Once planted, the seeds require plenty of water and warmth to germinate. Maintaining orchard grass is pretty easy since it’s tolerant of drought, high traffic areas, and other challenging environments. 

  Growing orchard grass for pasture purposes pairs with clover varieties very well since it provides balanced nutrition. Rotating orchard grass with other crops for foraging purposes is recommended to help prevent overgrazing. 

  Orchardgrass used in lawns needs to be mowed often since it will grow and create an uneven appearance within 24 hours of cutting. 

This grass is best used for foraging and providing livestock with balanced nutrition when planted with or near legumes

 Although orchard grass is prized as a hay source, it’s also considered a weed typically found in tall fescue lawns. This tall growing grass appears green, healthy, and whole. It looks great on any property and is easy to grow. 

  Livestock enjoys grazing on the grass, and it produces a solid, healthy appearance when mowed.
