Fescue Grass (also known as Festuca) is an evergreen, perrenial tufted grass which is widely used as ornamental and turf grass, as well as for pasture and hay.
Fescue grass is susceptible to hosting a fungus known as Neotyphodium coenophialum which lives within the fescue plants and seeds. Livestock and horses (espeically broodmares and foals) are susceptible to
Fescue Grass Toxicity. No adverse effects have been reported in non-breeding horses.
