The lucerne is a leguminous plant characterised by its high content of good quality protein and crude fiber. It is a drought-resistant plant that delivers up to three harvests. It is sometimes referred to as alfalfa. Lucerne is often included as a raw material in factory produced equine feeds and is also available to purchase as a raw material in the form of LUCERNE Chopped, LUCERNE Pellets and LUCERNE Pure Pellets. LUCERNE Chopped and LUCERNE Pellets contain molasses while LUCERNE Pure Pellets is completely free of added molasses.

The recommended feed should be based on the nutritional value of the forage feed that is given in addition to KRAFFT Lucerne Chopped. As a guideline, feed approx. 0.5–4 kg per horse per day. Ensure that the horse receives sufficient other coarse feed (a total of 1-1.5 kg dry coarse feed per 100 kg of horse). KRAFFT Lucerne Pure Pellets should be soaked before feeding to minimise the risk of oesophageal impaction, commonly known as choke.
1 litre KRAFFT LUCERNE Pure Pellets = approx. 0.6 kg.
