What kind of hay is used to feed horses and cows?

    Horses are dairy cows do not have high crude protein (CP) requirements. They do not require high energy or even moderately high protein diets, so high digestible energy hay is undesirable. Hay that has no mould or dust is more important to maintaining their health. Grass or grass-alfalfa mixtures are also an option. The preferred mixture is typically alfalfa and timothy.

    Horses’ and cattle’s digestive systems are designed to process large amounts of relatively low-nutrient roughage. If possible, they will wander and graze here and there up to 20 hrs a day. It’s healthiest for them to feed them free-choice grass hay that isn’t too high in protein.
    Dairy cattle need more nutrition to produce quality (and quantity) milk.
