Dryland alfalfa hay is cut up to twice per season, while irrigated alfalfa may be harvested up to 3 times per season. Unlike Timothy hay, which is graded by observation and smell, alfalfa hay is graded by an independent laboratory analysis. Due to its high protein content and our excellent growing conditions, Barr-Ag’s alfalfa hay is sought after by dairy operations around the world; many of our clients come during the harvest to visit our farms and place their orders.
Barr-Ag’s farms and producers are strategically positioned near the eastern slopes of the Canadian Rocky Mountains. We are fortunate to have clean air, long warm days with cool nights, soil rich in calcium and magnesium and a pristine environment in which to grow our non-GMO alfalfa hay.
