The feed value of crownvetch can be similar to that of other legumes. Studies have shown that crownvetch in the proper growth stage, will have crude protein of 20-30%, Neutral Detergent Fiber (NDF) around 40%, and Acid Detergent Fiber (ADF) near 30%. All these numbers are comparable to other legumes.
