Feeding Cut Alfalfa Hay

Would alfalfa hay, cut, say, from one-half to three inches in length be

better than whole hay for hogs, cattle and horses, and if it is better,

should it be fed wet or dry?

Cattle and horses do much better when fed chopped alfalfa hay than when

fed whole hay. They can eat the required amount in much less time and

with less exertion. For cattle and horses the hay should be cut about

one inch long and fed dry. There is no advantage in chopping alfalfa hay

for hogs unless it is mixed with ground grain and made into slop. - L.
