Alfalfa is a legume pasture that is generally higher in protein and energy than grass pasture. Alfalfa pasture may be a suitable option for performance and growing horses with higher protein and calorie requirements.
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.
