2nd Cut Timothy Hay

Harvest Date - August 2021

Timothy hay is grass hay, but the "cuts" on the Timothy hay are very different. My farmers cut ALL their hay a couple of 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.

Guineas love this

This is my second purchase of the 2nd cut and my 3 girls thoroughly enjoy it. I’ve read it’s more nutritional than first cut (bc first cut has a lot of fluff that don’t hold much nutritional value) and so I know my Guinea girls are getting what they need (and there are the sprouts still, like in first cut, but just not as much so they have to hunt for them when they want them. This foraging encourages them to eat the sustaining hay first and get the fluff-part as a “desert”/treat!)
