QUALITY ALFALFA OPERATIONS
When it comes to feed, nutrition is our number one priority. For 35 years, Larsen Farms has built a strong reputation in the livestock industry by providing high-grade, high-yield alfalfa with low stem moisture content, large leaf coverage, and the highest level of protein and nutrients available.

Our commitment to your livestock has never changed. And never will.

What has changed is the way we get our hay to market. Larsen Farms has revolutionized the feed industry with technology that dramatically cuts costs, improves convenience, and maintains quality. As a result, we not only provide the best nutrition; we also provide the best value.



Research
We have invested tremendous resources into producing the best feed possible. We continually grow and test new varieties of alfalfa on our farm, working directly with seed companies, livestock owners, and nutritionists to meet and exceed your expectations.
Shredding
Larsen Farms hay is sold pre-shred, saving you a step at feed time, and giving you alfalfa that's four to eight inches long-the length that maximizes the digestive process in cattle and enhances the butterfat content of a dairy cow's milk

To prevent particulate nutrients from being lost into the air, our trimming process is a closed system. Sophisticated cyclones collect floating dust, chaff, and leaves and integrate them back into the bales.
Compacting
Once the alfalfa is trimmed, it enters computer-controlled compression chambers, where the bales are compacted to half their original size. This allows Larsen Farms to ship more hay in less space-so we keep our prices are competitive even when we ship cross-country.

Storage
Our three-story, 120,000-square-foot hay terminal is the largest alfalfa storage facility in the United States with space for 10,000 compressed tons of hay. The facility includes five loading docks where 10 railcars can be loaded at once.
Shipping
Our patented shredder/compactor can process 20 tons of hay per hour, and allows us to fit 58 tons into each railcar. By compacting our bales and using rail shipping, we cut shipping costs tremendously, so much so that we can be competitive in Southeast markets.
Quality Control
Before a bale is loaded for shipment, it's tested for quality. Any that don't meet our high standards are used in Larsen Farms' own beef feedlot.
Guarantee
We are so confident in our hay operations, we gladly guarantee the price, quality, and delivery of your hay. Larsen Farms helps you avoid annual price fluctuations and gives you the stability and quality you need from a feed supplier.
