Chaffhaye Alfalfa

For All Classes of Goats

Chaffhaye is a fresh chopped, premium bagged forage sold in 1.5, 5 & 50-pound bags that captures the key characteristics of fresh pasture while also offering a guaranteed level of nutrition.

Most animal feeds go through a drying process that removes a majority of the naturally occurring plant juice from the forage. This essentially drains life from the feed. We process Chaffhaye to retain its natural plant juice, preserving the natural probiotics of the feed. By retaining the plant juice, Chaffhaye becomes the closest product you can buy to fresh, natural pasture. Hence, we call it “Premium Pasture in a Bag.”

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.

After only 1 month my daily milk volume increased by 1/4. I really noticed my goat’s coats, eyes, and muscles tone had improved by February 2014. At every show, I attended people would stop and ask “Is that Chaffhaye, where can I get it”. I shared any info I had and they loved the condition of my goats. I strongly recommend Chaffhaye for its superior quality, packaging, nutritional benefits and the overall health & general appearance of my goats.

    A fibrous mat at the bottom of the rumen is necessary to retain and cultivate beneficial bacteria in the digestive track. Chaffhaye is the perfect chop-length to create this fibrous mat.

    Dust and Mold Spore Free

    As a naturally moist feed, Chaffhaye minimizes respiratory ailments in animals sensitive to dust or airborne mold spores

Higher Weight Gain & Milk Production Increased nutrient absorption and microbial based protein production makes Chaffhaye great for both meat & milk operations.

Net Energy-Lactation – This is an estimate of the energy value of a feed used for maintenance plus milk production during lactation and for maintenance plus the last two months of gestation for dry, pregnant does.

Chaffhaye for Weaning

After six weeks, ruminants weaned on haylages like Chaffhaye have been shown to have a 50% larger and more developed rumen. More surface area means a greater ability to absorb nutrients and in turn maximize their genetic potential for growth. Chaffhaye is the premier forage for weaning.


When Changing Feed

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

After observing your animal for a period of time on Chaffhaye, you may want to increase or decrease by up to 10% to obtain the desired overall body condition and appearance. 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.
