Alfalfa King Double-Compressed Hay

 

Alfalfa King ultra premium Double-Compressed Hay is a 100% natural food source essential for small animals such as rabbits, mice and guinea pigs.

Alfalfa King grasses are grown without any use of pesticides, artificial colours or flavours. It is then put through a hydraulic press to squeeze a regular bale down to half of its size, eliminating all of the air. This process is the equivalent of vacuum packing for a hay product. The double-compression procedure keeps the hay fresher for longer periods, ensures high leaf count, retention (less dust) and holds the robust aroma of the hay.

Available in 3 varieties.

  • Alfalfa Hay
  • Oat, Wheat & Barley Hay
  • Timothy Hay

Feeding Instructions:

  • Provide your choice of hay in a feed hopper, bin or simply feed loose as a daily addition to the small animal’s food.
  • The amount of hay offered will vary with the size of the animal.
  • Hay provides the extra fibre optimal to small animal’s digestive system. Therefore feeding hay every day is highly recommended.
  • Change hay daily and serve with fresh water.
