Alfalfa80 is a pellet forage produced from the summer cuttings of our alfalfa fields, and is an excellent base for providing quality nutrients, especially to lactating animals.

Alfalfa80 combines a substantial protein content with a good-quality fibre fraction, rich in pectin, hemicellulose and cellulose. The protein fractions are well balanced, with an amino-acid profile of high biological value. The fibre fraction, notwithstanding the small particle size, provides valuable amounts of structural fermentable carbohydrates that help contain the overall starch load of the ration.

Alfalfa80 has been formulated to provide up to 15% of the total dry matter in the rations of lactating cattle with medium/high yields, and in the rations for lactating sheep, goats, rabbits, horses, pigs and poultry. The excellent palatability and the quality of the fibre component make it a useful ingredient for the modern rations of commercial livestock used in milk production. The composition of the product also makes it competitive with other food sources as a protein ration for beef cattle.
