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. In diets for pet rabbits, it may be found in some muesli mixes to balance out the calcium deficient parts of the diet. Not all rabbits eat it, especially those with dental problems that do not have the perfect teeth that are required to cut through the fibrous stems.
