"I have been growing alfalfa for years and this is the best start an alfalfa field has ever had for me. I planted Target brand Rugged alfalfa in early April. The first cutting from the new seeding was taken in mid-July and I got 14 big round bales from the ten acres. In August, I harvested another ten big round bales from the field. I was extremely pleased with the vigor of Rugged, its rapid regrowth and also it's quality. I would recommend Rugged to anyone."

Tiffany Teff is a new warm season annual grass hay for the horse hay market with “quality and palatability rivaling Timothy.” Click here for more information on Tiffany Teff.
A June 2009 article in Nebraska Farmer magazine quoted several producers who have added Teff as one of their annual forage crops. These producers have started using strains such as “Tiffany” for starting calves, feeding dry cows and providing good nutrition for horses.
Dennis Fitzke, the alfalfa product manager for Hoegemeyer was also interviewed for the article and added, “Teff yields can vary from 4 to 5 ½ tons per acre in multiple cuttings on better eastern Nebraska dryland fields.”
Hoegemeyer has added Tiffany Teff to their forage lineup and seen good success among producers. Fitzke went on to say, “We have seen Tiffany Teff fields produce up to 7 to 8 tons of forage when 75 to 100 pounds of N are added under irrigated conditions.”
