I think I read somewhere that you weren't supposed to feed piggies this all the time but I forget why could someone refresh my memory? we were giving our piggies fresh alfalfa from our yard this summer and they loved it

Alfalfa has a high protein content, but it is also packed with vitamins and minerals. I would think if it was mixed with timothy it would be ok, but I'm no expert so don't take my word for it. Just monitor your pigs and make sure they are still peeing and pooing normally etc. Maybe wait to get some better advise :)
