Alfalfa (Medicago sativa) is an important forage, hay and silage feed. Alfalfa is a perrenial legume which is high in protein (15 - 20%) and calcium, and low in sugar.
Orchard Grass (Dactylis glomerata L.) is a perrenial, cool season bunchgrass. Orchardgrass can be used for pasture, hay, green chop, or silage.
Alfalfa and Orchard Grass are often harvested together into hay bale feed.
