Alfalfa is chock-full of nutrients and vitamins due to its intricate twenty to thirty-foot deep root system that reaches nutrients unreachable by normal root systems. Alfalfa pellets and alfalfa bales can provide 100% replacement for dry hay, pellets and cubes and can be a complete forage supplement to traditional diets. However, consulting with a veterinarian about the best diet for your animals is usually a good idea before changing their diet, regardless of your livestock’s purpose, whether for show, work, leisure or other purposes.

Alfalfa pellets and alfalfa bales benefit animals because they are high in fiber, packed with nutrients such as calcium and are a viable source of digestible protein. Alfalfa's high fiber content makes alfalfa an ideal animal feed choice due to the fibrous diet requirements of livestock. The target markets for Fornazor's alfalfa products include: beef cattle, horses, sheep, goats, and feed mills.

In addition, alfalfa benefits the following animal groups:

  • Weaning
  • Growing
  • Gestating
  • Lactating
  • Geriatric
  • Stressed
  • Traveling

Feed mills also use alfalfa pellets and alfalfa bales as an animal feed ingredient by grinding alfalfa pellets into meal and incorporating other feed ingredients to produce a high-fiber, high-nutrient, multi-faceted animal feed. While alfalfa pellets produce less waste than alfalfa bales, alfalfa bales allow for optimal grazing solutions for farmers, cattle owners and feed mills.

In addition, alfalfa pellets provide dust and mold-free solutions to animal feed. Alfalfa pellets are ideal for older horses that have problems with their teeth because it requires less chewing than hay.
