Chaffhaye Alfalfa

For All Classes of Bovine

If you are an owner of prized cattle herd, you have probably faced the difficult challenge of finding quality forage on a consistent basis. It is not always easy to keep the digestive system of your livestock properly functioning, while also meeting a large percentage of your animal’s daily nutrient requirements at a reasonable cost. Chaffhaye provides a solution as a superior alternative to baled hay and processed feeds for your cattle.

Benefits for Cattle

There are unique biological aspects to Chaffhaye that exert health and physiological benefits beyond the nutrition of the forage itself. Chaffhaye undergoes an all natural fermentation process in the package that enlivens it with yeast, enzymes, and beneficial microflora. Chaffhaye’s beneficial microflora, or fiber-digesting bacteria, closely resembles those found in the early fiber-digestion process in the rumen of ruminants. In essence, Chaffhaye “predigests” the forage in the bag. Once consumed, more of its nutrients can be assimilated (absorbed ) in the body, leading to greater nutritional benefit.

How an animal nutritionally utilizes their feed is just as important as what is in that feed. A feed can have all the nutrition in the world but if the animal can not absorb that nutrition it is lost in manure. An animal’s ability to absorb a feed is known as their “biological response” to the feed. With Chaffhaye your cattle will achieve one of the highest possible biological responses.

    Cost Effective

    Chaffhaye is much more nutritious than hay, so the amount of supplements and hard feeds can be greatly reduced. Other considerations are lower feeding and storage losses. A long shelf life with no loss of nutritional value means no wasted feed.


When Changing Feed

Chaffhaye is designed to meet the forage portion of your cattle’s diet. Depending on such factors as age, breed, lactation, available pasture, and whether you are feeding solely Chaffhaye Alfalfa or Chaffhaye along with other forages and grains, an energy and/or vitamin and mineral supplement may be needed. Consult a Chaffhaye representative or your vet for further information.

Feed changes should be made gradually over a period of 7 to 14 days. Changes in the rate of feeding should not exceed 2 pounds per day.

How to store an open bag

Once opened, Chaffhaye acts like any fresh product. By opening the bag, the forage becomes exposed to oxygen and begins to lose its freshness. As a guide, Chaffhaye will remain fresh for 7 to 14 days, depending on weather conditions. For this reason, an opened bag should be stored out of the sun and re-closed to prolong freshness. Follow these 3 steps to ensure your Chaffhaye stays as fresh as possible.

Step 1
Open the bag

Use a knife or box opener to cut along the top seam of the bag.

Step 2
Roll the top back down

After removing the serving, roll the top back down and press out all the air. DO NOT TRANSFER PRODUCT INTO CONTAINER- this will reintroduce oxygen and shorten the shelf life. 

Step 3
Tape the top down

Or place a heavy object keep rolled down. Set in cool place. If storing for longer than one week, you may remove product to place in individual freezer bags and freeze to keep fresh.

The Best Method

The Chaffhaye bag is specifically engineered to extend the forage’s shelf-life. For that reason, we recommend always storing your Chaffhaye  inside the original bag. For best results, do not place inside containers as this can heat the product.
