  Description : Oxbow Hay Company Alfalfa Hay

Alfalfa is a high-fiber legume forage hay that is sometimes called the "Queen of Forages". It differs from grass hays such as timothy, orchard grass and brome in the leaf, stem, and root structure. Alfalfa is legume hay and the protein, calcium and energy content are higher than in grass hay. Because we take special care and bale at night, you will find that Oxbow's Alfalfa Hay has a soft stem with the leaves attached.

Alfalfa is an outstanding feed for young animals. It contains more crude protein, digestible energy, and calcium levels than any other forage. In addition, it has the fiber content needed for normal digestive functioning. Alfalfa provides the essential calcium necessary for growing bones. Alfalfa is also a source of important minerals, including phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, zinc and selenium.

Alfalfa Hay should not be fed to all animals. But if used carefully, in certain situations, it can be a valuable tool in nutritional management.

Due to it's succulent taste, Alfalfa Hay can be used as an appetite stimulant when an animal is ill or for post surgical patients. Because it is high in fiber, a small pinch can be given as a treat.

  • "Queen of Forage"
  • Great for young animals
  • Essential calcium for growing animals
  • Baled at night for softer stems and leaves
  • Great appetite stimulant for sick animals

Feeding Directions:

  • Growing Animals-Under 6 months of age - Unlimited amounts plus free choice grass hay.
  • Mature Animals - Occasional small amounts.
  • Nursing Females - Unlimited amounts in addition to free choice grass hay.

Alfalfa Hay should only be offered carefully to mature rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and prairie dogs due to the higher protein and calcium content. Many vets believe that animals prone to kidney stones, bladder stones or calcium crystals in their urine should always avoid alfalfa.
