What are Lucerne (Alfalfa) pellets used for?

  • Plant Doctor Lucerne (Alfalfa) Pellets  can be used to add calories to an amimals’ diet. They are a great source of calories, because they are forage-based. Forage based calories will not cause many of the problems that high sugar and starch feeds, such as grains, do.
  • They can also be used to add protein to a diet. Alfalfa is higher in protein than grass hays, so pellets can be used to boost the protein level of a diet.*
  • If fed with a long-stem fiber source (grass/pasture, beet pulp, alfalfa cubes) they can be used to replace calories lost when hay is scarce or unavailable, but they cannot be used alone to completely safely replace hay.


  • Lucerne (Alfalfa) pellets are an excellent way of providing fibre in a concentrated form
  • No added sugar and low in starch
  • Lucerne (Alfalfa) Pellets are rich in calcium and other naturally occurring vitamins and minerals
  • They can be fed soaked, making it ideal for older animals who struggle to chew
  • Lucerne (Alfalfa) Pellets are perfect for use in a snack ball to help reduce boredom and provide a more natural ‘trickle’ feeding rate
