Winterhawk was developed in collaboration with OreGro Research and Dr. Gordon Prine of University of Florida. Selected during several cold winters in Nebraska, Winterhawk is the premier winter hardy annual ryegrass.

Winterhawk is an excellent addition to a forage program for all species of livestock where wide adaptability is needed.
