Lucerne Pellets

Lucerne pellets are a natural source of protein and fibre for ruminants and are ideal for assisting rumen function.

Naturally rich in vitamins and minerals, lucerne pellets have multiple nutritional benefits for ruminants.

Source of quality protein and fibre

Lucerne pellets are the ideal raw material for feeding to cattle, goats and sheep, where a source of protein and fibre is required to be fed in pelleted form.

Ideal for assisting the rumen function

Lucerne provides high levels of digestible fibre and is a natural buffer, making it ideal to supplement the ruminant’s diet when feeding large quantities of cereals and silage.

Rich in trace elements, beta-carotene and vitamin E

Lucerne naturally contains higher levels of beta-carotene and vitamin E than cereal-based rations.

Can be fed to all classes and ages of livestock

With homogenization to meet the required specification, lucerne pellets can satisfy the needs of different animal sectors.

Our lucerne is grown naturally and no genetically modified varieties are used.
