Default RE: Alfalfa Food Plot

We've had very good results with "vernal" alfalfa here in MN. It's a tried thru and thru seed that handles our weather well. If your plot is worked well and you fertilize every year or every other, it's very common to get 6-10 years from it. Heck, one of my small fields hasn't been replanted in 20 years, and it still has about 30% vernal still growing. Another option instead of haying it, is to haver it chopped and blown back on your field. This is an excellent source of nitrogen and benifits your plot greatly. Taz
