It is more tolerant to grazing with a bunch type growth habit, higher in both yield and forage quality when compared to smooth bromes. It also has excellent palatability and is a super dry weather plant. It has an early heading date similar to a mid range orchardgrass maturity. It offers a similar yield to traditional Smooth Bromegrass but has a distinct advantage because it will regrow quickly, right through the season.
There are at least three major families of bromegrass: Smooth, Meadow and Mountain or Alaskan. However, only two of these, Meadow and Mountain, have been improved by European breeding programs. Improved bromegrass is quick to establish and provides a high quality, high yielding forage that works well as a companion with alfalfa. 
Recommended seeding depth is 1/4" to 1/2" and seeding rates of 25-35 lbs/Acre or 10-20 lbs/Acre in mixes. Brome grasses have larger seed size than other grasses so attention to drill calibration is important. The growth patterns of Brome grasses, in general, do well when planted as a companion with alfalfa.
Bromegrass requires high fertility levels and well-drained soils. Bromes will persist if allowed to go to seed once every season.
