Foragecast Episode 7 - Nutritional Impacts of Alfalfa for Livestock
*Dr. David Weakley*, Director of Forage Nutrition Research, joins this week to discuss how to best evaluate the nutritional impacts of alfalfa for livestock diets.
Want to better understand the importance of high-quality forage testing?
*- RF, TDN RFQ, ADF, NDF, UNDF* - we got you. We help sort through these and recommend what to focus on and why.
- Alfalfa has the highest protein containing forage for dairy and beef cattle
- Alfalfa allows high-producing dairy cows to meet their genetic potential more quickly
- Alfalfa makes the animal more efficient in producing milk components
Join us as we take away some of the mystery around the high-quality forage analysis!
Take a deep dive into alfalfa topics and address real, on-farm issues that revolve around alfalfa’s integration into cropping systems.
Due to factors outside of Forage Genetics International’s (FGI) control, such as weather, crop production patterns, and other factors, results to be obtained, including but not limited to yields or financial performance, cannot be predicted or guaranteed by FGI. Results are based upon FGI controlled tests and field trials and public trials. Results may vary.
