Timothy 1st Cut Hay in 3 strap bales is a staple horse feed within the riding and show horse category. This hay provides adult working horses with a consistent lower protein high fiber feed. The hay is harvested when timothy is fully mature during the summer when hot dry days allow for sound drying. 1st cut timothy can seem coarse, less green and stemmy compared to other grass hay but that’s its nature and why it provides such a good source of fiber. Produced across NY, PA, OH, MI and Ontario in large square bales, then they are cut and repackaged in the 3 strap bale,. The bales weigh around 70lb and contain about 15 flakes. They can be easily handled in any stable operation.
