Dehydrated alfalfa pellet


Dehydrated alfalfa pellet

Alfalfa is a forage plant, the most widespread in Italy and in the world. It is an irreplaceable friend of nature, it is essential for biodiversity and enriches the soil of mineral elements. It represents a fundamental source of vegetable protein for animal husbandry, as well as being rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals. The wealth of protein alfalfa depends on the symbiosis with rhizobium, beat that colonizes the roots and transforms the nitrogen gas into organic nitrogen. Italy is a country highly suited to the cultivation of Alfalfa: in this area, due to favorable climatic conditions and soil composition, it is possible to grow alfalfa without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides or irrigation with water groundwater. Although in need of fertilizer to a lesser extent, the plant is very resistant to pests and adverse weather conditions, thus reaching the threshold of convenience without requiring herbal interventions. All these features make the alfalfa plant a respectful ecology and therefore the ideal crop for forage organic agriculture. Alfalfa is the essence of most widely used forage for hay, given the quality of the forage obtainable. Especially if dehydrated, this plant has the greatest yield in terms of protein and fiber per hectare. In addition, alfalfa brings in a more balanced way than other forage all the elements necessary minerals to the animal. Also from the point of view Supplement, organic acids and trace elements, as alfalfa is a real mine of substances, being currently the fodder that has the composition more similar to the plant in full vegetation. A diet of alfalfa is essential for the growth of healthy animals and durable and ensures the production of milk, meat and eggs of high quality.

Alfalfa pellet

The alfalfa pellet used in the food industry is characterized by some important nutritional characteristics including:

- A high protein value;
- Low in fiber (NDF);
- A more suitable pH favorable to the synthesis of milk;
- Contains organic calcium, beta-carotene, choline and vitamin E;
- Contains crude protein.

Thanks alfalfa pellet for livestock will have a high output with less recourse to the use of concentrated feed.

What are the advantages of using alfalfa pellet?

Surely the cost of animal feed, but also a limitation in the appearance of metabolic problems, first of all ruminal acidosis. All the company's products Agricole Forte contain alfalfa among which we recommend Alfalfa Mille Foglie, alfalfa pellet forage with excellent nutritional value, ideal for the formulation of balanced diets intended for feeding to dairy cattle, sheep and goats high production.

10 good reasons to choose it:

Source of natural nutrients

Excellent content of organic calcium, beta-carotene, choline, vitamin E and essential fatty acids of the Omega series (3 and 6).

Consistent quality

The chemical composition of the forage is stable and uniform. This simplifies herd ration planning, reducing the need to frequently reformulate the diet.

Convenient to handle

Easy to transport and store, it occupies little space and is not susceptible to mould or undesired fermentation (moisture < 11%).

Practical to use

The pre-cut product can be readily incorporated into unifeed rations, reducing the time needed to prepare the mixture.

Improves yields

The quality of the product is always consistent. Control over the cutting stage and standardised harvest and storage methods ensure minimal losses of the leaf fraction (protein) and good digestibility of the fibre, maximising the metabolisable energy provided to the animals.


The product is not subject to loss of weight (moisture < 11%), thus assuring a purchase of dry matter that is entirely available for use. The direct sourcing from forage growers also offers livestock farmers a substantial cost saving.

100% GMO FREE Italian

Grown using certified, non genetically modified seed from ecotypes of the Po river Delta.

Selected crop

The result of careful varietal selection aimed at obtaining the best forages suitable for the correct dietary rations of all types of livestock.

Quality-certified forage

All the stages of the supply chain and the end product are certified to guarantee full transparency and traceability.

Fibre with strong mechanical action

High yielding ruminants are at permanent risk of acidosis due to the high fraction of concentrates included in their feed rations. RumiSprint80 helps to balance their dietary composition by providing highly rumen-active fibre of the right length, which stimulates the production of saliva, a natural buffer of ruminal fermentation.
