Item Information

Standlee Premium Alfalfa Cubes are formed by coarsely grinding Standlee Premium Western Forage and forcing it through a large die with heat and steam.

  • Alfalfa forage is low in sugar, moderately high in protein, high in calories and digestible fiber

Ingredients:
Naturally Sun-Cured Premium Western Alfalfa Forage, Bentonite.

Guaranteed Analysis:
Crude Protein (min.) 16%
Crude Fat (min.) 1.5%
Crude Fiber (max.) 30%

Feeding Instructions:
On average most horses comfortably consume 2% of their body weight in dry forage per day. This equates to 20 lb. of dry forage per day for a 1000 lb. horse. Standlee recommends that you weigh the amount of forage provided to each horse to ensure you are feeding the proper amount. Standlee also recommends that pelleted and cubed forage not be the sole source of forage since feeding some long-stem forage (hay) may help eliminate boredom and prevent stall vices. Feed Standlee Premium Western Forage at a minimum rate of 1.5% of body weight per day. Gradually replace existing hay with Standlee Premium Western Forage over a 7-10 day period. Replace existing hay on a 1 to 1 basis with Standlee Premium Western Forage. Standlee Premium Western Forage is recommended to be fed wet, soaked in water for 30 minutes or until properly softened, for horses that have dental problems or for horses that aggressively consume their feed. Never feed moldy or insect infested forage to horses. Always provide free-access to fresh, clean water. If you have questions, please contact the nutritionists at Standlee Premium Western Forage, or consult with your veterinarian.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from No real complaints They quality is good it just takes a very long time for them to expand in water. My friend uses Triple Crown and her's expand in just a few minutes. I have to soak mine overnight and break the cubes up.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from All too hard I have a 39 yr old Kiger Mustang, taken wild 1980, an endurance champion. He can't break hay, quids it all day. I depend on cube products. Have tried both alfalfa/timothy, alfalfa, Bermuda and even after 12 hrs of soaking only 25% of cubes can be broken further by hand. I use a hoof pick and hammer on wet ones. Have to find a better product. Can you imagine if he choked on feed after surviving this long.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So Green I thought they were from Ireland :) This is the first time I bought this brand of Alf. Cubes. The others at TC were a little cheaper and being in a 50 lb. bag. But the Alf. was light faded green looked bleached out. So what a surprise to see these. So Irish Green. Yes read the other review about being hard as bricks. Yes they are, but you need to soak in water to break down before feeding. So superior to the other brand Ill give up the extra 10 lbs. for the quality of the hay. He gets more out of it. Cubes are better to put on weight than alf. pellets. I buy a mix cube also to give. Since its not good to feed straight alfalfa, being its to hard on kidneys, you'll see high urination in stall (except when in harsh winters, they burn it up for body heat, I give straight alf. then), so I mix with Alf./oat or Alf./timothy. I also grow barley fodder. Check it out on Utube.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Alfalfa Cubes Not Like They Used to Be I have been buying Standlee Alfalfa, Alfalfa/Oat, Alfalfa/Timothy Cubes for many years....only once have I purchased a a group of bags and get home only for them to be moldy...(that has never happened before and I returned them the next day no problem)...I mainly use the cubes as treats in the summer but in the winter I like to make up what I call a Hay Cube Stew...Cubes, bran, carrots, apples and hot water...let it soak in boiling hot water and the horses really love it. I have to agree with the other reviews that particularly the Alfalfa Cubes are like Cement! I struggle to even break them up with a hammer....you need an ice pick and a hammer...no joke....you must let them sit in very hot water for at least 1/2 hr. before they even remotely soften. I have tried slamming the 40lb bag on the pavement prior to opening thinking it would help...no such luck. The quality of the hay is tops but they didn't used to be this cement like...processing must have changed...also a major problem is finding small strands of red or blue twine in the cubes....so you do need to inspect the cubes...that is a hassle when I want to make a large bucket of the hay cube stew. Mixing the cubes with water in the summer is not an option as they sour quickly with the heat. Prior to finding the Standlee Hay Cubes at TSC I had purchased hay cubes at a local feed store a few times they were very poor quality hay mixed with a lot of dirt...I ended up trashing the bags the few times I tried them. All that being said...I will continue to purchase the Standlee Brand Cubes at Tractor Supply. Just wish I didn't have to look for the pieces of twine nor them be like cement blocks.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hard as bricks We purchased these as treats for our cows. We've used the Standlee alfalfa+oat blocks in the past, and were happy with them. However, these alfalfa only cubes are hard as bricks and require us to smash them hard with a hammer before the cows can eat them. We tried soaking a few in water, but the cows weren't interested in the resulting mush.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not happy with this product!!! The cubes dont smell good and are dusty! A lot of lose Alfalfa inside the bag. even when you soak it 6 hours, some of the cubes are still hard inside :-( My horse eats it but not like her regular Alfalfa Cubes.

Would this be good to feed to replace grain for a horse who needs weight or should they only be fed with the horse getting grain/feed as well?

Asked by: Carla24
Thank you for your question. Standlee Alfalfa Pellets are a great source of feed to help aid in the weight gain of an equine. The Alfalfa Pellets can be an equines whole source of forage, therefore no grain needs to be added. Thank you

Are these safe to feed to deer?

Asked by: BuggyHunter
Standlee Premium Western Forage has several deer farms who purchase the Alfalfa Pellets for their feeding programs, with great reviews. We would not recommend the cubes as they are larger in size, and could be a choke risk.

It gives instructions on feeding the alfalfa forage not the cubes. These wd be heavier thus confusing how much should be fed. My gelding is on pasture and not much hay at the present time since there's a shortage so I was just going to supplement cubes

Asked by: AnneG
Thank you for you question. At Standlee Premium Western Forage we use the saying “a pound of forage is a pound of forage regardless of its form”. A pound of baled forage is the same as a pound of cubes or pellets. If using Alfalfa cubes as a supplemental feed, Standlee would recommend working your horse up to about 5lbs of Alfalfa Pellets over the course of 7-10 days, then if you feel they need more or less, you can always increase or decrease the amount given, as each animal’s needs are different. Thank you
