Timothy hay is a grass hay, but the "cuts" on the Timothy hay are very different. My farmers cut ALL their hay a couple weeks before other farmers. Even though their yield is lower, the quality is better and the hay is younger and contains more nutrition.
2nd Cut Timothy Hay
In our area, 2nd cut Timothy is cut in late July or early August. It has a higher leaf to stem ratio than 1st cutting. It has a beautiful green color, has some stem and seed heads, but a lot more leaf than 1st cutting. The 2nd cut Timothy I carry is one of the nicest Timothy hays I've seen. It is high in fiber and is cut early so there is plenty of nutrition in the hay. The stems are much smaller than 1st cutting. This is still a more coarse hay than bluegrass, orchard grass, or 3rd cut Timothy hay because the stems are still there. This is a favorite hay with rabbits.
If you are looking for a super soft hay with a ribbon like quality, choose our 3rd cut Timothy hay, or our bluegrass.
We have been ordering hay from KMS Hayloft now for the last few years for our school's pet bunny Rex. We are extremely happy with the quality of the hay (and so is Rex! He loves it!) The purchase process is fast & easy and orders always arrive right on schedule (and sometimes even beforehand!). We would highly recommend this product to any bunny owner. Thank you!!
Love the quality and the smell of both types of hay I received.
My lil piggies love it too!
The shipping was quick and it was packaged carefully to ensure the quality of the product. Will definitely be purchasing more!!
The 2nd cut Timothy hay I received was beautiful and my Guinea pigs loved it. I just received a second order of 3rd cut Timothy hay and I am equally pleased. I will no longer be buying tiny bags of hay from the pet store. I'm glad to have found KMS Hayloft.
