Depends on the CRP land and how they treated it.
If you spray the broadleaves, and add a titch of nitrogen, you get some nice grass hay. Depends on the management.
You're right, this looks like waterway/ditch hay. Especially with all of the corn stalks in it.

Hey, it's not as bad as it COULD be! My BO got some hay in that had lots of sticks in it. To top it off, one boarder gave her horse some of that hay, and the horse wouldn't eat it. When she picked it up the next day, to discard it, she found a deer leg in it! Surprise surprise! I wouldn't eat that either!

Yearling
Here in TN, I know a guy with 4000 bales of decent first cut Timothy and fescue or possibly orchard too. Something like that. Im feeding it to my guys and am happy with it.

He wants to sell some semi truck loads to clear out before cutting again if anyone needs some good hay in bulk. It would come from East TN so kinda central to most of the eastern seaboard. PM me for a contact number.

He was asking 4 dollars a bale from me but Im only buying 12 at a time. Probably cheaper for bulk loads? Just a thought if you are in a bad hay situation it might be of interest. Its decent clean hay from what I have been feeding and well baled about 50 to 60 lb 2 string bales.

Green Broke
I had to drop a favorite supplier about a year and a half ago because she switched on me, so I know how it can be. The first truck load she brought me was wonderful, green,tender and sweet smelling stuff that Cinny just gobbled up and couldn't get enough of. The second batch wasn't quite as nice, but I figured it was a different cutting, no big deall, there wasn't really anything wrong with it, just wasn't AS nice. The 3rd truck load, Cinny wouldn't eat. It was almost half straw (yes, bright yellow straw), the goats wouldn't even it it! It also had sticks, and here and there bits of what looked like trash from the side of a road that had gone through a mulcher.

When I complained she yelled at me and said it wasn't HER fault my horse was "off his feed" and that the farmer she gets her hay from had the highest quality in the state, blah blah blah. She then called me a few not so nice names and hung up on me. Crazy Crazy. Proof that sometimes you have to open up a few sample bales before accepting the whole truckful and unloading it ha ha.
