Orchard grass 1st cut sweet hay is a very soft hay baled at 25% moisture when conditions did not allow for drying. The hay was cut at optimum maturity and tests 15% as 1st cutting. Highly palatable it’s an excellent cattle feed and in some cases can be fed to horses. The wrap is very high quality having 10 layers to keep any air out. The hay was also baled at high density to keep air out of the bale and preserve the hay better. Sweet hay is a term used when hay is baled with some moisture but not enough moisture to make the hay ensile or ferment. When baled as a sweet hay it will hold its color and stay fresh and smell good having all the characteristics of dry hay. The 3x4x6 high density bales weigh around 1500lb.
