Is it possible to use alfalfa cubes sold at local feed stores as a supplemental feed instead of corn?
This is just a curiousity question and not supplemental feeding debate.

We put some feed and water out behind our house for our "pet" deer. We enjoy just watching them. I bought some of those cubes at Tractor Supply and the deer have not touched them. It's been about 4 days. Maybe when it gets colder but anyhow I thought they would eatum up. Not yet.

I have fed them alfalfa pellets and they went berserk over them. Plus the coons didn't seem to bother them either. I do not know what an alfalfa cube is.

We feed them to our horses. Instead of pellets they come in cubed form. Here is a picture of what I am talking about.

I would of expected them to tear them up also.

Sounds like a good experiment.

A deer's mouth is not designed to eat cubes but they will readily eat alfalfa pellets. They have a hard time with cubes so there will be little use. You can often find alfalfa pellets sold as rabbit food.
