Nutritional Value of Alfalfa
Alfalfa is an excellent fodder plants that contains high levels of quality proteins, minerals and vitamins. Its energy value is also extremely high, as it is correlated to the nitrogenised content of the fodder. Moreover, it is a sources of minerals such as calcium, phosphorous, magnesium, sulphur, etc.
The high levels of beta-carotenes (precursors of Vitamin A) affect bovine reproduction. At Industrias Ralda, we provide dehydrated alfalfa and alfalfa hay in a range of formats to feed all types of livestock.

This is alfalfa that has been chopped and dried (by hot air). As the alfalfa is dried in a trommel, the leaf crumbles slightly and, depending on the corresponding cut, it ends up fairly fine (like flour). Subsequently, in the pressing process to make the bales, the leaves tend to move to the outer part of the bale, in the form of flour.
