Oxbow Alfalfa Hay, 15 oz.


Oxbow Alfalfa Hay is a high-fiber legume hay with the same long-strand fiber found in grass
hays, but with more protein, energy and calcium. This hay is perfect for young or lactating
animals that need concentrated nutrition. The succulent taste stimulates the appetite of ill or
post-surgical animals. Once an animal reaches adulthood or completes recovery, this nutritious
forage should be replaced with a grass hay. Alfalfa Hay, mixed with any other Oxbow grass hay,
creates a rich, flavorful and nutritious treat
• – Alfalfa Hay is a high-fiber legume forage hay that is sometimes called the “Queen of
Forages”. It differs from grass hays such as timothy, orchard grass and brome in the leaf,
stem, and root structure. Alfalfa Hay is legume hay and the protein, calcium and energy
content are higher than in grass hay. Because we take special care and bale at night, you
will find that Oxbow’s Alfalfa Hay have a soft stem with the leaves attached.
• – Oxbow’s Alfalfa Hay is an outstanding feed for young animals. It contains more crude
protein, digestible energy, and calcium levels than any other forage. In addition, it has the
fiber content needed for normal digestive functioning. Alfalfa provides the essential
calcium necessary for growing bones. Alfalfa is also a source of important minerals,
including phosphorus, potassium, magnesium, sulfur, iron, zinc and selenium.
• – Oxbow’s Alfalfa Hay should not be fed to all animals. But if used carefully, in certain
situations, it can be a valuable tool in nutritional management. Due to it’s succulent taste,
Oxbow’s Alfalfa Hay can be used as an appetite stimulant when an animal is ill or for post
surgical patients. Because it is high in fiber, a small pinch can be given as a treat.
