Tekapo can be grazed to near ground level due to its low crown and dense, prostrate growth habit. This feature, along with its high palatability, excellent digestibility, and good feed value, makes it ideal for hay and grazing pastures.
Establishment under ideal growing conditions could be 6-7 weeks for a spring sowing and 10-12 weeks for a fall sowing. In a pure Tekapo stand, the first grazing should be brief and you should be sure to leave 4-6 inches of residual.
