Alfalfa stems

Alfalfa (lucerne) is used in many diets for commercial rabbits that are growing or breeding during their short lives. It has a high fibre and calcium content. It is also high in oxalates. It is found in some muesli mixes to balance out the calcium deficient parts of the diet and increase the fibre content. Not all rabbits eat it. Rabbits with dental problems may have difficulty cutting the fibrous stems.
