This study was carried out to determine green, dry herbage yields and most suitable harvest period of sainfoin. Also, it was made in order to determine amount of nutrient matter and condensed tannin. Samples were collected from seven different trial fields in four different harvest periods (beginning of budding, 10% flowering, 50% flowering and seedpod) and four replications. There was no statistically significant difference between the average of the field at each harvest period (p=0.80). In terms of dry matter ratio, there was a statistically significant difference between harvesting periods from budding to seedpod period (p=0.001). There was a statistically significant difference in crude protein, NDF and ADF parameters depending on the progress of harvest period (p=0.001). There was a statistically significant difference in terms of metabolic energy (ME-3X) parameter depending on the progress of harvest period (p=0.001). At harvest periods, there was respectively 4.42%, 4.92%, 5.93%, 7.59% extractable condensed tannin values. There was a statistically significant difference between harvesting periods in terms of condensed tannin parameter (p=0.001).
