Nice. We usually only feed orchard grasses, with johnsongrass mixed in, and sometimes lesbadeza hay, but I never knew about the seresa hay untill the other day. It's real fine, real nicely dried stuff. Pretty, green, smells nice, but has a few sticks in it. It's real light hay too.
Our guy has his bailer set to pack the hay down, and it makea about 65-75 lb hay bales. That'd be just two string bales.
I like this seresa, lesbadeza mixture, even though it's a lighter bail of hay, it's about 50/60 pounds, not real heavy, but the horses seem to like it a lot, and they look great on it.
Ah, we don't feed grain--if we do, it's rolled oats, and a mix of high fat pellets, and they get a mineral block in the pasture, with 24/7 hay-- in the summer, I'll throw a few flakes out, but they'll be real fat on just the pasture grass. :)
I'd like to see some haylage. Never heard of anyone feeding it. What's the average protein? You said you feed beet pulp, is it not enough fiber?
What time of year do you cut haylage?
