Alfalfa Hay

Alfalfa Hay has proved to be one of the most beneficial forms of intake for countless livestock and feeding animals. Its feed value is stated to be the most sustained due to its high concentration of nutrients such as protein and calcium setting itself apart from others.

We believe that these nutrients in-turn largely affects the growth of the animal, keeping it healthy and stable. One of the advantages that were highly considered by our organization is that Alfalfa Hay is not just for a few animals but is also utilized for many animals that transition from one stage to another. Hence, animals that are lactating are widely benefited from such an intake as well.

Alfalfa Hay primarily comes under the category of Legume Hay which is extremely rich in fiber. The most effective feature of such a form of Hay is that it continues to stimulate appetite in animals causing it to be very valuable in terms of taste and quality. Moreover, we ensure that the quantity of fiber present is just the amount to keep an animal’s digestive system in order.

Alfalfa Hay is most commonly used in Horses, Chicken, Turkeys, Cows and Beef Cattle. It’s further sub-categorized as Forged Legume Hay which is widely used in many parts of the world such as the United States of America. It’s yielding potential and versatility has made it extremely popular not only for the consumption of many forms of animals but also as a soil improver.

The available forms of Alfalfa Hay depend on many different aspects. However, they are most commonly observed in types such as Cubes, Pellets, Bales and Chopped. Being such a widely endorsed plant, Alfalfa Hay has exceeded its pro’s in becoming well established within the market and within our organization as well.

Maize, more commonly known as Corn in certain parts of the world is an extremely beneficial cereal grass for the consumption of both animals and humans. It is developed and produced by a wild grass known as Teosinte.

Being an annual cereal grass, Maize has outdone other forms of grass with its pluses. It seems to be much more productive and is able to be utilized for larger populations ensuring higher yield value in a single harvest.

As stated above, Maize can be used for both animal and human consumption. However, Maize has certain different values based on their usage and consumption. Now in modern days Maize is using in many ways to get maximum nutrition and feed value and reduce bio-waste.

Corn Silage

Both used as substitutes or complimentary products can almost always guarantee a more balanced feed for the desired cattle.
Corn Silage is not only well-known for its energy potent nutrients, but is also considered as one of the most toothsome feeds for the cattle!

Feed Grade Yellow Maize Grain
