I have around 150 bales that were baled a little wet
They are great 2nd cutting hay but have some mold spots on them
If you are interested, the price is flexible I just don't want them to go to total waste
I can send you pictures also
Askin $1.50 a bale
Call or text me at
Thanks, Ben

Ugh :/

Not for horses!

But honestly I think someone told me that cows can eat that kind of hay but is this actually true?

Should be fine for cow hay.

I have never had cattle so not sure. Seems nasty for any thing to eat it..
Guess I give the guy some credit for being honest about it..but seriously?!

Is there a reason why they can handle it?

It has something to do with them being ruminants; having more than 1 stomach. Cattle can stomach (and thrive) on a lot of stuff that would kill a horse. So long as the hay isn't completely eaten up with mold, then it's fine for cattle.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

What smrobs said, it's just the way their digestive system works.

People also buy hay like that for goats around here. Or for landscaping purposes. And who knows what else.
