Quality Alfalfa
High quality seed and proper seedbeds pay off - as seen in this 3rd year crop.

Types of HayLegumes

Legumes are generally high nutrition forages. Most people are familiar with Alfalfa and Clovers, but don't necessarily understand them.

The single most important factor in legume hay quality is the maturity at which it was cut. Our target for Alfalfa is 30 - 40 days...but mother nature often modifies our plans with a little inclement weather.

Thus, we harvest at the maturity allowed by the weather...and price our hay based on the actual nutritional value that the testing shows is in the hay.

We plant several different varieties of alfalfa, and several different blendings. Good alfalfa comes from good seed and proper seedbeds. Not cheap, and not easy.
