1st Cut Horse Feed Hay Photos
Photos of our First Cut Taken in June 2011. The first-cutting hay here, was cut a few weeks ago. It is in big square bales weighing around fifty-five pounds, stored in our covered hay barn with good ventilation.

An average Mature Weight 1100 lbs horse will eat 16-24 pounds of hay per day.  How much hay do you need?

Calculating Amount of Hay

Number of days to feed hay  times  20lbs. hay/day  divided   by 
number of lbs./bale  =  Total number of bales  needed.  
(Example: 30 days X 20lbs = 600, divided by 40lbs/bale = 15 bales/30 days.)
