To increase the relative feed value and protein of our alfalfa, we try to cut it before it goes into the blooming stage. This approach gives our product a finer stem ratio with increased protein and relative feed value. Due to a finer stem ratio, it is easier to digest and with our quality product, the livestock will eat everything instead of picking through it and only eating the finer stuff.
We carefully monitor our alfalfa as we bale with the most up-to-date moisture control equipment installed on our balers. We always try to cut at an earlier stage to achieve the finest stem ratio possible.
Our bales are 3’ x 4’ x 8’ in size with an average weight of 1,500 lbs. Square bales are easy to move, easier to store and produce less waste than round bales. Square bales also require less storage space and are easier to transport.
