PAC 040 is a purpose bred animal nutrition variety that is perfectly adapted to the cooler environments prevalent in Canterbury and higher altitude/inland parts of the central North Island. It is also very adaptable and regularly outperforms other varieties in the 75 to 85 CRM maturity group in regions as far north as Waikato.

Tolerant of windy conditions, PAC 040 maintains healthy leaf area when the leaves of most other hybrids get shredded.
