Maximize Your First Cutting of Alfalfa

It’s the goal of every alfalfa grower to harvest and preserve high-quality alfalfa silage. While plant genetics play a critical role, properly timing the first cutting of the season can also significantly impact the preservation of nutritional quality. Additionally, the first cut of spring regrowth can account for as much as half the season's total yield. Growers need to strike the right balance between quality and yield.

For many farmers, that’s dairy animals, as they require high-quality alfalfa forages. Generally, quality is highest when alfalfa plants are younger. As they grow, they add tonnage, but nutrient density diminishes.

Dyna-Cure™ is a hay conditioner designed to improve the quality and yield of hay forages. It works to give the natural curing process in hay an advantage. Dyna-Cure™ is simple and economical to apply with application equipment developed specifically for Dyna-Cure™.

Premium Value if You Sell Your Hay

Current hay markets suggest there is a $50 to $100 per ton premium for higher quality hay. Field testing of Dyna-Cure™ treated hay has shown an improved RFV of 10 points with 0.6% improvement in crude protein. Depending on baling moisture, trials have shown yield increases of 150 to 300 pounds per acre per cutting.
