If you have ever driven across the desert west of the United States and noticed occasional fields of bright green grass, chances are you saw alfalfa. Alfalfa is one of the oldest cultivated plants. Its name comes from the Arabic, al-fac-facah, "father of all foods." Although alfalfa is a food crop for animals, it also has been employed as an herbal medicine for at least 1500 years. Ingestion of alfalfa seeds or sprouts may be associated with a decrease in blood cell production while the leaves and stems provide a good source of protein

Alfalfa and Lucerne are two names for the same plant: Medico sativa. This plant is one of the world’s most important and oldest forage crops and is now enjoying a revival in popularity. Alfalfa is a legume, which means that it fixes its own nitrogen. If you live in certain areas of the country you will see it growing in the field. At maturity it stands about 70cm high, has compound leaves and clusters of very pretty small purple flowers. Several cuts can be taken from the crop a year.

Since Alfalfa is a rich source of highly digestible fiber it is suitable for most horses and ponies. It is an excellent source of bio-available calcium and numerous micro-nutrients and vitamins such as zinc, biotin and vitamin A, all are vital for general good health, good hoof growth and are essential during pregnancy and lactation. The dried product, in its pure form will provide approximately 10MJ/kg of energy and something like 16% protein.

Alfalfa Powder

Harvesting of Alfalfa has changed in the last ten years. The plant is cut and left to wilt on the field for a day or so, depending on the weather conditions. It is then picked up and chopped with a forage harvester before being ‘flash’ dried through the high temperature dryer. The dryer resembles a huge tumble drier, about the size of a bus with hot air taking the plant temperature up to about 600°C. This reduces the moisture levels, retains the nutrient values and ‘kills’ any bacteria or molds. The chopped, dried Alfalfa is then stored ready for use later in the season.
