Compact Lucerne

Compact Lucerne

The Hartog Compact Lucerne is a valuable supplement to the feeding of poultry. The Compact Lucerne bales are made of a high quality dehydrated lucerne / alfalfa.

The Hartog Compact lucerne for poultry is a compact bales of 20 kg. The bale is holding together by 4 plastic straps, therefore the harnesses bales are staying longer compact and so poultry spilled less lucerne or alfalfa. The bales are packed in a plastic film, but it's also possible with a private label. 

  • Compact Lucerne bales keep the hens busy and help to prevent boredom
  • Compact Lucerne bales stimulate the natural pecking, give a larger feeling of satiety and therefore less aggresiveness
  • Compact Lucerne contributes to a high nutritional value


Our Lucerne is heated by a gas fired process (the only one in the Netherlands). During this heating process there aren't arising doxins, PCBs and heavy metals in the alfalfa. By heating it to high temperatures, the alfalfa is free from moulds, moisture and bacteria such as, Salmonella.


For producing Hartog Compact lucerne we use 100% alfalfa produced by growers that we monitor. The product is therefore free of weeds etc.
