Crotalaria Juncea (Thailand) gives us a quality hay, highlighting the appetite that the animals have in it.
The palatability analysed in all types of animals can be said to be very high. This is a very important aspect in small ruminants where the losses mean a very high percentage of the feeding costs of a cattle farm.
A crop that offers us hay with good percentages of protein, good percentages of fiber and an invitro digestibility of 70%.
Crotalaria Juncea can be used for hay and silage, it is not recommended for grazing.
Properly harvested hay should have green tones and a high percentage of leaf. As in other crops, the percentage of leaf has a direct link to the percentage of protein in the forage.
