Its suggested to feed rabbits mainly timothy or oaten hay and then occasionally supplement with lucerne hay.
Any leftover or spoilt lucerne hay can also be re-used as a garden mulch or fertilizer and will add much need nitrogen to your soil. Covering your topsoil with lucerne hay mulch will also help prevent your garden soil from drying out prematurely.
