Sourcing The Best Alfalfa
Lockyer Lucerne Products (LLP) is a wholly Australian made and owned partner of Hypro Premium.
Helping local growers and farmers, Lockyer Lucerne Products (LLP) supports Hypro Premium’s values in its mission of creating a natural and nourishing pet range made from real ingredients.
Lockyer Lucerne Products (LLP) specialises in using 100% natural lucerne which is more commonly known as Alfalfa. Alfalfa is a premium product that has been specifically cultivated from local and interstate harvests which are then used by Hypro Premium in the manufacture of our range.
Through our partner’s innovation and technology, the locally grown and sourced Lucerne is processed in a specialised method via the tub grinder, conditioning chamber, and a hammer mill to create lucerne meals. The lucerne meal is then exposed to heating and pressurised to reach a minimum temperature of 85 degrees in order to create quality sterile lucerne pellets.
This manufacturing process ensures that all lucerne pellets are 100% composed of Lucerne with no chemicals or additives present in the finished product.
Lucerne, also identified as Alfalfa, is a perennial legume widely known and cultivated as an important crop in many countries due to its many benefits.
Alfalfa is found to be high in protein and known to be a Beta carotene source that converts into Vitamin A, an essential nutrient for pets. Alfalfa is a wonderful nutrient which helps to support healthy vision, hormones, and protein synthesis.
When you purchase Hypro Premium for your pets, you can be assured that we’ve carefully screened and sourced the best ingredients.
