"Feeding 2-4kg dehydrated Lucerne can replace up to 12kg of silage on a dry matter basis," explains Mr Rees. "As a concentrated forage with 18% protein, Lucerne contains high levels of digestible fibre alongside natural pH, buffering the cows rumen."

"When considering alternative sources of forage, cost a tonne of dry matter offered is key to profitability and dehydrated Lucerne provides high levels of good quality dry matter."
