Chaffhaye is a premium Non-GMO Alfalfa, sold in 50-pound bags. It captures the key characteristics of alfalfa, while also offering a guaranteed level of nutrition. Chaffhaye is ideal for ensuring maximum health and well-being of all classes of horse, deer, goat, llama, cattle, chicken, camelid, household pets, and other exotic animals.

  • Our commitment to grow and package the freshest, most nutritious forage product available
  • Non-GMO verified product
  • Family owned, state of the art facility in Dell City, Texas
  • Increases digestibility of secondary feeds in the diet


Chaffhaye undergoes a natural fermentation that transforms the raw alfalfa into a super digestible forage, enriching it with yeast, enzymes, and beneficial microflora that aid digestion as well as absorption of its nutrients by the animal. Chaffhaye is soft, easy to chew, and free of dust and mold.

  • No “Hay Belly”: Less intestinal fill means a better fitting saddle and a better performing athlete
  • Stress Reduction: Natural probiotics maintain an optimal digestive pH, eliminating ailments from stress and hauling
  • Dust & Airborne Mold-spore Free Guaranteed! Whether competing at the highest level or pleasure riding, breathing issues should be the last thing on you or your animal's mind.
  • Convenient Packaging: Compact with No Mess and No Waste. Chaffhaye is perfect for the road.

How an animal's digestive system utilizes given feed is called their biological response. Studies involving horses have shown a significantly higher biological response to fermented products like Chaffhaye. A higher biological response means your horse is getting more nutrients out of their forage. The “pre-digestion” inside the bag allows the horse to absorb more nutrients in the foregut with less spillover to the hindgut.

With Chaffhaye you will notice reduced manure and very little undigested plant matter. With a bit of examination, one can quickly conclude that a higher level of nutrient absorption occurs with Chaffhaye than with baled hay.
