Alfalfa hay is a forage source obtained from the alfalfa, or lucerne, plant. It is commonly used in the feed for ruminants, cattle, poultry and horses and is available in the form of bales, pellets and cubes. Alfalfa hay is a rich source of energy, protein, fiber, calcium, vitamins and minerals and is produced by harvesting the crop with a swather and sun drying it in strips. The dried strips are mechanically compressed into bales and further turned into smaller cubes and pellets. In comparison to the traditionally used grass hay, alfalfa hay has a nutrient content and is more palatable. It is also used in the manufacturing of nutritional supplements to promote growth and improve the immune system in animals.

Alfalfa Hay Market Trends

The increasing consciousness regarding animal nutrition among the masses is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. Moreover, the shifting consumer preference toward premium-quality dairy and meat products is providing a thrust to the market growth. Alfalfa hay is an environment-friendly and cost-effective feed alternative with a long shelf-life. It is added to cattle feed to improve the quality and quantity of milk produced. Additionally, the utilization of hay manufactured with non-genetically modified organisms (non-GMO) crops is acting as another growth-inducing factor. This can also be attributed to the increasing consumer demand for chemical-free meat and milk-based products. Product manufactures are utilizing innovative harvesting and processing machinery to produce long-fiber hay products and cubes with enhanced fiber content. Other factors, including significant growth in the agriculture industry, along with extensive research and development (R&D) activities in the field of animal husbandry, are anticipated to drive the market toward growth.
