Key Market Trends

High Nutritional Property Of Alfalfa

Alfalfa is one of the most important feed sources for animals globally, owing to its nutritional benefits. Alfalfa hay is used, primarily as an animal feed, for dairy cows, for horses, beef cattle, sheep, chickens, turkeys, and other farm animals. These hays are higher in protein and minerals and are more palatable than grass hays. Alfalfa in particular is high in energy and is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals.

It contains between 15 to 22% crude protein as well as an excellent source of a wide range of vitamins and minerals. It has the most feed value of all perennial pasture forages. Due to the high nutritional content of alfalfa, the demand is growing in the market. This rich nutritional content of alfalfa drives the market as the need for the quality feed for animals is increasing.

Increasing Livestock Production is Driving The Hay Market

Increasing demand for the dairy & animal products, decreasing grazing land and increasing livestock production have a postive imapct on the growth of alfalfa market significantly. This is essentially due to the increasing number of cows raised by modern dairy farmers who prefer using imported hay and commercial feeds. 

Superior quality alfalfa hay (low maturity) fed to livestock promotes maximum returns in milk and meat production. High quality alfalfa hay contains less neutral fiber that is more digestible. This allows for greater dry matter intake, supporting higher milk production. The dairy sector is essentially boosting the demand for alfalfa hay in this region.
