Our 2016 Crop is exceptionally nice!! Bright Wheat Straw in 2 String Bales has a variety of uses but is primarily used as bedding for horses. The long clean fibers create a fluffy bedding for mares and babies and is also used for horses, calves or other animals that may be allergic to wood shavings. The straw comes apart, bales pop and shakes out very well. The bales weigh around 48lb and are tight and dense. Other uses for this type of straw include decorations, mulching and seeding.
