Lucerne, also called alfalfa, is one of the oldest recorded feed plants in history. The Persians fed it to their horses 500 B.C. Today, lucerne is often added to müsli mixes to provide structure. However, it is also an important horse feed by itself due to its valuable protein, ß-carotene, vitamins and minerals.

Lucerne is an ideal concentrate feed for horses used in breeding and sport as well as for young horses. An advantage to lucerne is that, unlike cereal feeds, it doesn’t put strain on the horse’s digestive tract and metabolism while providing sufficient energy.

Furthermore, lucerne’s high calcium content balances the phosphorus levels that occur in a cereal-rich diet and thus restore equilibrium to the calcium:phosphorous ratio. The calcium contained in lucerne is an important building block for healthy bone growth in young horses and helps to prevent bone damage in sport horses and working horses.

The whole plant undergoes a gentle drying and processing, allowing it to retain its nutrients and vitamins.
