NRG is here to help your farm perform at its best. Whether it’s reseeding old pastures or establishing new hay fields, NRG has quality varieties of cool and warm season grasses to meet your farm’s needs.


Alfalfa is a perennial deep-rooted legume. It’s a great selection for hay production or grazing, and is one of the highest-quality forages available. When selecting an alfalfa, consider the DRI (disease rating index), WSI (winter survival index) and FD (fall dormancy) relative to your location.

Orchard Grass

Orchard grass is a cool-season bunch grass that is medium- to long-lived and performs best on well-drained soils. Early and late maturing varieties are available depending on if it is being used for hay production or grazing.

Perennial Ryegrass

Perennial ryegrass is a fast establishing and palatable grass. It is a great choice for long-term use in grazing pastures or hay production.


Fescue is commonly used because of its versatility; it can be used for waterways, erosion control, forage, pastures and lawns. The crop does well in areas with low fertility and is one of the most drought-resistant field grasses.


Timothy is a cool-season perennial bunch grass. It is ideal for hay production and performs well in pasture and waterway mixes.
