Freedom! red clover is the latest release from the University of Kentucky. It is selected for increased dry matter production and drying and has finer stems and less pubescence (hairs) on the stem which causes the plant to dry faster.

The main draw back is limited persistence and winter-hardiness. Through breeding, improvement has been made on these characteristics.Freedom!
