    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?

    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.

    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.
