Benefits of Alfalfa bales:
High quality protein. Worldwide researches in animal nutrition prove the high quality of alfalfa’s vegetable protein. Using alfalfa bales as a source of protein improves quality of milk, meat and eggs. That makes it an efficient forage, reducing the requirement of supplements in animal’s diet, for more economical farming.
High nutrient availability. Dehydration process and storage procedures preserve natural nutrient complement of the plant. Besides the vegetable protein content, alfalfa is a natural and recognized source of: Fiber, Vitamin E, Calcium, Amino acids, Selenium, Potassium. Beta carotene is a precursor of Vitamin A, promoting health and good performance.
Fibre source Alfalfa is a superior fibre source due to a low proportion of cell walls and a high proportion of digestible carbohydrates and protein. Therefore, alfalfa hay bales can be consumed in larger quantities than most forages.
Reduction of Heat Stress Alfalfa is rich in available minerals and vitamins, which are especially necessary in hot or humid climates. The available minerals of alfalfa rapidly replace the ones lost in sweating, reducing heat stress and allowing the animal to ingest same quantities of feed as in cooler climates, with benefits on milk production levels.
Other Alfalfa hay bales attributes are palatability and uniform quality during long time period.
