At the vegetative stage, the high concentration of tannic polyphenols in common vetch could be useful to decrease lipolysis and biohydrogenation of polyunsaturated fatty acids in the rumen and thus contribute to a higher transfer efficiency of polyunsaturated fatty acids to ruminant dairy products (Cabiddu et al., 2010). For livestock, especially cattle, this legume initially has a low palatability, and it may take a few days before vetch is readily eaten. Net wrapped, inc some pods.

Anim. Paid on pick up or before leaves farmgate Legume straws showed better nutritional quality than cereal straws, indicating that they could be considered promising and interesting sources of roughage for inclusion into ruminant diets (Lopez et al., 2005).
