Food Plot Q & A: Is Alfalfa a good crop to plant for deer to eat?

Hunters often ask “Is Alfalfa a good crop to plant for deer to eat?” Dr. Grant Woods, Wildlife Biologist, answers that question here in this video. Then he shows how adding a cover crop can protect the soil, provide food for white-tailed deer and other wildlife during the winter months. Alfalfa is a great cash crop for farmers, but in winter it is severely lacking. Add a cover crop via no-till drill after the last harvest of alfalfa. See more on these type of soil conservation and food plot management tips on our food plot playlist linked in the video.
