Alfalfa is a perennial legume that is a good source of protein and calcium. Alfalfa hay can help meet the needs of horses with high energy and protein requirements such as during growth, lactation, or competition. Feeding alfalfa can easily exceed the calorie and protein requirements for horses with lower energy demands.
Mad Barn's Feed Bank provides nutritional profiles on +3,000 forages, feeds and supplements used in the equine diet. With our free diet formulation tool, this data can be used by horse owners and nutritionists to design balanced feeding programs for horses in their care.
