What is Alfalfa?
Alfalfa Hay is one of the most important forage crops cultivated in agriculture. It is widely grown throughout the world as forage for cattle and is typically harvested as hay. Alfalfa has the highest feeding value of all commonly grown hay crops. When grown on well-adapted soils, alfalfa is the highest yielding forage plant.
Alfalfa Hay is used primarily for dairy cattle but is also fed to beef cattle, horses, sheep, goats and camels. One of the most important characteristics of alfalfa is its high nutritional quality as a “complete” animal feed. Alfalfa contains between 15% to 23% crude protein, as well as an excellent source of vitamins and minerals.
