Medicago sativa is a plant that originally comes from western Asia, well-known in history for millennia and appreciated by cattlemen as food of the highest nutritional value.
Medicago sativa is known on the international level by its original arabic name Alfalfa. This is a plant rich in proteins, macro and micro mineral elements. It presents a vitamin and provitamin content markedly superior to other feeds and simple cattle food as well as relevant intakes of organic acids, sugars and fatty acids of the Omega 3 series.
Its important features make Alfalfa an essential factor of comfort and health for the animals that consume it and it is also an excellent source of energy and is a particularly digestible food because of the limited presence of lignin.
The modern technology of artificial dehydration allows the evaporation of high quantities of water in a short time with preheated and dehumidified air. This technique guarantees a higher nutritional value in the final product and it permits an optimal preservation going forward and hence risks of mold, fungus and toxin formation are avoided. This technique also prevents the revival of fermentative activity after treatment.
Dehydrated Alfalfa, packaged in bales and in pellets for easier storage, is the perfect product for the direct feeding of cattle, equines, goats and sheep, camelids and poultry.
