Superior Quality Pellets From Hand Selected Bales - Made Fresh to Order!
A typical 40lb bag of alfalfa pellets found on the shelf sells for $13-16 per bag (around $0.38/lb). They are cheap because big companies like to pellet their scrap and by-product, stalky (not leafy) filler material with lower nutritional value. Most have sat in warehouses for a very long time while being exposed to rat droppings, bird droppings, prone to machinery fluid spills.
Our pellets are made ONLY from "Supreme Grade" WHOLE BALES. Quality alfalfa pellets should not be anything other than a vibrant green marbled color with a glossy outside sheen to them with a fresh potent alfalfa smell.
We produce our alfalfa pellets in small batches in a clean shop using an American made pellet mill which reaches temperatures and pressures that conventional large Chinese made mills cannot. This is an important factor when it comes to your animals digestion of feed and chewability. Were dedicated to providing our customers the highest quality alfalfa feed pellets available. Your animals will thank you for "givin' em the goods".

The advantages of pellet feed are numerous:
You will be able to have a kind of feed that is easy to handle and measure, thus making feeding time so much easier on the horse owner. In addition to taking the guess work out of feeding the animals, you will also be assured of the quality of the pelleted feed which is consistent throughout while textured feeds are not. Since the nutritional makeup of the feed is the same throughout, you will be able to properly plan your animal’s nutritious regimen and also execute it with the same level of consistency day in and day out. This also prevents picky eaters from only ingesting the portions of the textured feeds they enjoy while leaving behind that which they will rather not eat.
Taste is also a factor that manufacturers have taken into consideration, and horse owners have found that even horses with an affirmed sweet tooth for the molasses bound feed will eagerly eat the pellets. Furthermore, if your horses’ nutritional needs change, you will be able to adjust the feed accordingly and it may be done quickly and easily. Once again the uniformity of the pelleted feed is its very strong point, in that each pellet contains the amino acids, lysine, minerals and also vitamins that the animal needs. The price tag is also a most advantageous feature. Take for example the fact that the pellets are completely digestible you will not find any of them in your horse’s manure, thus not having wasted your money. Instead, you will save money since the feed is not wasted and completely digested and used. In addition to the foregoing, since pellets are specially formulated to store easily, they will not spoil like other feeds, and even changing temperatures have no influence on the appearance, taste, and structure of the pellets. Shelf lives range from one month to about 3 months- some store bought pellets are shelved for a year or longer (but lose significant quality), giving you more time than textured feed before needing to replace the feed.
Some horse owners are hesitant to feed pellets simply because they look differently. Others allege that pellets are the cause of colic, but this has been disproven since colic is the result of insufficient roughage ingestion – remember that half of a horse’s daily food intake needs to be roughage! Do not allow your animal to bolt its feed to prevent choking, and place the pelleted feed in a proper feeding vessel. As you can see, there is no real scientific reason for not at least offering your horse pellet feed to see if it likes and maybe you, too, will enjoy the convenience of this feed.
A horse needs to eat 1-2% of its body weight in roughage. For example a 1000lb horse needs to eat 10-20lbs a day in hay. So as long as that horse eats its 10-20lbs of roughage it can have 3-5lbs of fresh alfalfa pellets.
Some customers use the alfalfa pellets as "feed extenders". Meaning they sprinkle the pellets amongst the hay, encouraging the horse to eat all of its hay (since they usually go right for the pellets they are bound to get a mouthfull of hay along with it). Again saving you money.
Please consult with your veteranarian regarding specific nutrition needs for your animals.
