Lucerne Farms, located in Northern Maine, is a family farm that carefully controls every step of its forage feed production. When you call Lucerne Farms, you speak with the people who actually grow the forage as well as process this naturally good feed for your horse.
HORSES evolved as grazers. Horses of all sizes and breeds need quality forage. Your horse can EAT LIKE A HORSE with our natural blends of healthy forage feed. What we produce is not just HAY IN A BAG!
We grow and process quality forage products including alfalfa, timothy, and oat hay. All our products are high temperature dried and are blended with a low sugar molasses. The virtually dust free forage has great potential for improving your horse’s health. Our harvesting method guarantees the consistent nutrition, a significant advantage when planning a feeding program. High temperature drying effectively “locks in” the natural nutrition, while destroying harmful mold spores that cause respiratory problems.
All of the forage feeds we grow and produce are an ideal fiber supplement or can be used as a complete hay replacer when required. Hay shortages or when hay quality is poor, present ideal times for replacing hay with our forage feed. As a fiber supplement, you can mix your daily grain ration with two to three pounds of our forage feeds with each feeding. The horse will not “bolt” their grain ration. They will chew more and create more saliva; both are helpful for proper gut function. The consistent fermentable fiber benefits the microbial action in the digestive system.
You may be able to cut back on grain, hay and vet visits by feeding our quality forage feed products.
