Hay is a perfect product to stimulate the rumen activity. Ideal for feeding young stock and cows in transition.

Hay can well be used as a supplement to pasture or other feeds. It helps balance the nutritional content of the overall diet, ensuring that animals receive the necessary vitamins and minerals. The fiber content in hay is essential for maintaining good digestive health in ruminant animals. It promotes proper rumen function and helps prevent issues such as acidosis and bloat.

In addition hay is crucial for breeding animals, growing animals, and those in production (such as dairy cows). It is well noted that changes in diet or disruptions to regular feeding patterns can be stressful for livestock. Hay can serve as a consistent and familiar component of their diet, reducing stress associated with dietary changes.

In some situations, such as in feedlots or during transportation, fresh forage may not be readily available. Hay provides a convenient and portable alternative to fresh forage as also is relatively easy to store, making it a convenient feed option. Properly stored hay retains its nutritional value for an extended period, allowing farmers to stockpile feed for times of scarcity.

In summary, feeding hay to livestock plays a critical role in ensuring a balanced and consistent diet, especially during times when access to fresh forage is limited. It contributes to the overall health, productivity, and well-being of livestock in various agricultural settings.
