Alfalfa, also known as Lucerne, is a legume grown around the world as a forage crop. It has the highest feeding values of all the hay crops as it is high in both protein and digestible fibres. Its structure is ideal for providing optimum ‘scratch effect’ in ruminants. This scratch effect is essential for correct rumen function, especially when high starch diets are being fed.
The inclusion of alfalfa in our complete diets ensures digestive upsets are minimised, without compromising on maximum daily live weight gain.
