How does alfalfa improve nutrition? What differentiates good-quality hay from marginal-quality hay? This publication covers feeding alfalfa to horses and includes a checklist for choosing good bales. Charts provide information for how much hay to feed horses of different maturity as well as how alfalfa contributes to their daily nutrient requirements. Several full-color photos accompany the text.
