Livestock, wildlife, and even honey bees
prefer Sainfoin over other forages. Highly
digestible and a higher sugar content gives
Sainfoin the edge over Alfalfa.
Sainfoin leaves naturally contain
condensed tannins, allowing the protein to
be digested instead of excreted.
Follow the $$$! Sainfoin is worth 25 to
50 percent more per ton than Alfalfa as
graze or hay. Without condensed tannins,
1/4 to 1/3 of Alfalfa protein will pass
through the animal undigested.
Sainfoin leaves naturally contain tannins,
allowing the protein to be digested instead
of excreted.
Growing best practices:
• Sainfoin establishes itself without a
cover crop.
• Do not mix with other plants such as
barley or wheat. 30 pounds per acre for
dryland or 1 cutting, 40 pounds per acre
for irrigaated or multi-cuts.
• Seed in fall or spring when moisture will
be held to the seed.
• Seed 3/4 of an inch deep or less.
• Hay when near full bloom, graze anytime
