AbstractAmino acid composition determinations on rough fescue (Festuca scabrella Torr.) from two locations showed that the contents were similar to those reported for Italian ryegrass but different from those reported for alfalfa. Rough fescue has adequate levels of methionine, cystine, lysine, threonine, valine, isoleucine, leucine, phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan and is a good source of protein.
