Hay & Straw

CFC Hay Options

 

Choosing hay for your horse, or any other animal, may seem easy enough, but there’s more to it than just making sure it isn’t spoiled.

The stage at which the hay is harvested is the determining factor in hay quality, including whether or not your animal will be able to digest it easily, and derive benefit from the nutrients in the hay.

At CFC Farm & Home Centers, we aim to take the guess work out of choosing the right hay. We have many options for you, from baled hay, to cubes and pellets, compressed hay, and chopped hay in a bag.

Chaffhaye - "Pasture-in-a-bag"

What makes Chaffhaye different from traditional baled alfalfa? The major difference between Chaffhaye and baled alfalfa is that Chaffhaye undergoes a fermentation process which breaks down the plant matter. The fermentation in a way "pre-digests" the plant matter so when the animals eat Chaffhaye they are getting about 50% more nutrition then they would out of a dry baled forage. Chaffhaye is a complete forage replacement for all classes of herbivores......MORE INFO

Feeding rate for:

Horses - 1.5 lbs of Chaffhaye per 100 lbs of body weight. An 11oo lb horse would consume a 50 lb bag in 3 days.......MORE INFO

Goats & Cows - 2 to 2.5 lbs per 100 lbs of body weight......MORE INFO

Feeding tips: Because Chaffhaye is a biologically active product it needs to be fed within 7 days after a bag is opened.....MORE INFO
