The same tree lucerne under different circumstances, ie: irrigation, climate, soil, pruning or grazing will appear differently, but the nutritional properties will remain the same.
Clients often ask whether we have the “Cattle” type or the “Sheep” type tree. The “Sheep” type refers to a hybrid called “Weeping Tagasaste” which is a smaller, shrub-like version of the Tree Lucerne. It does not carry the same yields, and we do not stock this type of tree or seed.
Furthermore, clients recently enquire about the latest names ~ “Cattle Candy“, “Kalahari Green“, and “Kilimanjaro” tree lucerne. These are newly created trade names used by an aggressive marketing campaign, but are all the same thing ~ Tree Lucerne!
Don’t allow yourself to be mis-informed or persuaded to think that you’ll get better yields or better adaptability by planting any of these new trade names.
They are simply the same tree!
