HQ

W-L Alfalfa’s high-quality line is an ideal choice for growers looking to increase milk production and reduce feed costs for high-producing dairy and beef cows. We’re using proven quality screening technologies to produce some of the highest-yielding and persistent alfalfa varieties available.

  • The HQ breeding program began with the use of a first-generation NIRS (near infrared reflectance) machine to scan alfalfa for protein and fiber characteristics.
  • Our biggest quality-selection breakthrough came when we began using in vitro true digestibility measurement techniques to closely mimic the actual digestibility of different varieties when fed to dairy of beef herds.
  • We continue to run thousands of digestibility evaluations each year, and breakthroughs in areas such as greater fiber digestibility, energy content and improved bypass protein characteristics ensure that we keep improving on an already superior source of feed.
