The Balin Forage Kentucky Bluegrass Story
 
Balin Kentucky Bluegrass was bred for high yields and tolerance to intensive grazing. What was produced is one of the most utilized varieties of Bluegrass, especially in intensive grazing pastures throughout Europe. It is well adapted to the Northeast US because it is extremely winterhardy and persistent. Balin is a medium maturing variety, producing high yields from strong growth in the spring and early summer. Balin’s tall growth adds to itsreliability, allowing it to compete very well with other grasses in the pasture.
