Timothy grass mix 1st cut hay 2 string bales is a common local hay found in many areas of the northeast. It is great for horses and many other types of animals and is the staple feed on many pleasure horse farms as well as farms where a variety of animals are being fed. The hay is grassy and softer having a texture not as coarse as a straight timothy or timothy alfalfa. It is also generally lower in cost than the other types of hay. Consistency is a problem with this type of hay because it is produced on smaller farms mostly in the eastern northeast where the terrain is hilly with changing soil types. For this reason some grasses do better than others in different parts of the fields and you end up with inconsistency. However it is great hay. The bales generally weigh around 45lb and can be easily handled.
