Alfalfa Seed For Hay & Pastures

Alfalfa SeedAlfalfa seed produces a cool season, perennial legume that is high in minerals, vitamins and protein it is one of the most nutritious crops that can be utilized in any forage situation including hay production, pastures and wildlife food plots. Planted all over the world, Alfalfa originated near Iran and has been found in one form or the other on nearly all the continents. Alfalfa represents one of the oldest forage crops. Depending upon the cultivar Alfalfa withstands a wide variety of climates and is highly drought resistant through dormancy for as much as two years.

Plantings of Alfalfa seed alone have sustained the honey industry, because of the high nectar quality. Thus the importance of Alfalfa as a pollinator crop and for the conservation of the honey bee and other pollinating insects.

A legume, Alfalfa is used alone, as a pasture crop for livestock and horses, planted with other grasses to raise the fertility of the soil, used in rotational grazing practices, planted in erosion control areas and wildlife food plots. In silage it is combined with grains and/or molasses. Alfalfa is a highly preferable feed for all grazing animals including livestock, horses and wildlife.
