Buying & Producing Good Quality Hay
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

Buying or producing good quality hay is an art and a science. Livestock need hay which is nutritious for growth and production, and good quality hay will reduce the amount of grain that needs to be supplemented.

 

To the untrained eye, hay is hay; however, there are great variations in nutrient quality. Looking at stage of growth, leafiness, color, etc., can be ways of evaluating hay and distinguishing good from bad.

 

There are also a lot of tricks to the trade in producing good hay. Many advances in science and hay-making equipment have made hay-making a more precise art.
