Lucerne Hay Bales (1 to 3 bales) Full Bale – For larger quantities see the other lucerne item below.
Lucerne Hay is extra green & fine leaved making it superior to most other lucerne varieties as food for rabbits and guinea pigs. Its generally recommended to only give lucerne hay to rabbits in-frequently as a treat, as its too high in calcium and protein. Its suggested to feed rabbits mainly timothy or oaten hay and then occasionally supplement with lucerne hay.
Any leftover or spoilt lucerne hay can also be re-used as a garden mulch or fertilizer and will add much need nitrogen to your soil. Covering your topsoil with lucerne hay mulch will also help prevent your garden soil from drying out prematurely.
Some people also use lucerne as bedding for their chickens or other poultry. Once they are done using it as bedding they then re-use it in the garden as a mulch or even as an excellent fertilizer.
