Alfalfa Hay for Foals and Broodmares

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. It is also rich in carotene and minerals.

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 :
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 therisks of acidosis.
