I am thinking about spraying my hay ground with 2, 4-D after first cutting of hay to kill weeds and thin alfalfa stand.
I wish to keep the stand of grass.

Will I be successful in no-tilling alfalfa and clover into the remaining grass?

Or, any suggestions about spraying etc to reach my goal?

Depends.
Grass into clover is very difficult.
Clover into grass works OK, unless it is a thick sod forming grass. Graze the grass hard before the clover comes up to set it back .
Check the waiting period on 24D.
Pray for rain.

I'm guessing you know you will have to wait a couple weeks to let the weeds and alfalfa leaf in order for the 2, 4-d to work......
