Alfalfa mix round bales
Green alfalfa is 1.0 inch / 2.5 cm from the surface of the bale to the green. This is both on the end and on the outside of the round. About 3% oats is present from volunteer cover crop. These bales were made with a near new baler with net wrap. The alfalfa was raked ahead so the hay is dry and the density is even. The analysis shows Crude Protein at 18.9%, Relative Feed Value at 132, and Milk Lbs./Ton of DM at 2,562. No fertilizer or herbicide has been applied to the field in two years.
