Second Cut Alfalfa Hay 2 String Bales is a standard feed for mares and foals on breeding farms. The hay is not as high in protein as the Western Alfalfa and is good where a mid protein feed is wanted. It’s a nice texture of Alfalfa with at times some soft grass mixed in. Bales weigh around 65lb and flake apart nicely. This hay is produced in the the fingerlakes region of NY, Ontario and Ohio.
