HAY FOR SALE

hay, in agriculture, dried grasses and other foliage used as animal feed. Usually the material is cut in the field while still green and then either dried in the field or mechanically dried by forced hot air. Typical hay for sale near me crops are timothy, alfalfa(alfalfa hay for sale near me), and clover. Given that the protein content of grasses and legumes decreases and fibre and lignified tissue increases as growing plants advance in maturity, a good hay crop must be cut at the proper stage, handled so as to retain the leaves, and cured to prevent spoilage or discoloration. Hay bales for sale are usually dried in small piles or stacks in the field, but a rainy climate may dictate forced-air curing in the barn. Properly cured hay with 20 percent or less moisture may be stored for months without danger of spoilage.
