Kahu Timothy is an older New Zealand cultivar of Timothy Grass, grown and tested in New Zealand conditions. It is known for its nutrient-rich forage, high in selenium and vitamin E, making it an excellent option for producing high-quality hay and silage. Timothy grasses are suited to heavy soils in summer wet areas, with their production peaking in the warmer spring and summer months. Kahu Timothy remains high in both quality and palatability, even when it is seeding. The high palatability of the Kahu Timothy cultivar can make it hard to recognise in a permanent pasture until the paddock is shut up for supplements. It is moderately tolerant of winter treading and heavy wet soils.
