Alfalfa hay for cattle, sheep, goats

Alfalfa farming is the archetype of the "ecological pause" promoted by the Grenelle Environmental Forum for its ability to improve the soil (large and deep root mass, making it resistant to drought) and its contribution to organic matter.
It is a leguminous plant with the ability to bind atmospheric nitrogen in its organic form, preventing it from reaching the water table. Its cultivation reduces synthetic nitrogen levels by three.
Alfalfa is renowned for its high protein content which is optimally suited to promote muscle mass in beef cattle or to increase the production of dairy cows. It is also rich in carotene and minerals.

Alfalfa is the most protein and calcium-rich fibrous forage per kg of dry matter. Its nitrogen thus makes it possible to secure your rations without concentrating them. Its exemplary calcium level has the virtue of buffering the ruminal pH and therefore to limit the risk of acidosis. Its beta-carotene content promotes the fertility of the herd. Finally, alfalfa has a very positive effect on milk quality by lowering the butyrus level and improving the nutritional quality of fats.

Control :
At each stage, from production to storage, are practiced hydrometric controls. The lots that do not meet quality criteria are listed and downgraded. A sampling is carried out on each batch and analyzed by a certified laboratory. These data guarantee the accuracy of your rations.

Nutritional properties :
Provides calcium, easily assimilated phosphorus, magnesium and potassium, as well as various trace elements. Role in regulating the functioning of the rumen as a buffer substance. Numerous advantages for the conservation and preservation of the nutritive qualities of the fresh plant, and for consumption.

Alfalfa is the richest in proteins and calcium per kg of dry matter of the fibrous forages. Its nitrogen content allow the safety of your rations without concentrating them.

It is imperative to rectify it in energy on the basic ration, by a cereal or a feed. Its mineralizing qualities are appreciated for its important quantities of iron, calcium and potassium. Its examplary calcium levels has the advantage of limiting the
risks of acidosis.

Packaging :
Bale CHC of 50x40x30 cm for 22 kg
Bale CHC of 40x45x50 cm for 32 kg
On palet of 24 to 48 bales, delivery by truck 27 t or contener 40" to 27 tons.

Advantages :

Space savings  and storage by two.

Ease of handling thanks to a small size of 50x40x30 cm for 22 kg or of 40x45x50 cm for 32 kg.

Nutrient preservation guarantee : compression reduces hay oxidation by expelling the air.

Ease of distribution

Assimilation improvement compacted slices require more bites and more salivation, in favor of a slower digestion.

Feeling of grazing recovered.
