Timothy is a perennial grass which is highly resistant to cold and very suitable for moist soils. It has a long period of spring growth before stem formation. In a cold spring, Timothy will grow better than most other forage grasses. Timothy is a component in many types of grass and red clover mixtures because it ensures durability without competing aggressively with other grasses. It contributes to overall quality in the spring and fall.
The late Timothy varieties are highly suitable for grazing. The sugar content and digestibility isn't as good as ryegrasses, but Timothy is high in fiber.
The early types with a high yield in the spring are ideal for silage.
