"Alfalfa is the most productive legume for Missouri, with potential yields exceeding 6 tons of hay per acre on good soils. Unlike red or white clover, established alfalfa is productive during mid-summer except during extreme drought. Alfalfa is a tap-rooted crop and can last five years and longer under proper management. Whether grazed or fed as hay, alfalfa is an excellent forage for cattle and horses."--First page,
