Hay and Forages

We take great pride in growing the best quality hay. With over 800 acres in production we prep and select a variety of high quality forages including alfalfa, grasses, and grain hays. When you buy your hay from us, you're buying directly from the grower. And we go one step further than your typical farmer - we laboratory test our hay so that you know exactly what sort of nutrition your animal is getting!

  • Premium Alfalfa

    Alfalfa hay is an excellent source of energy, protein, calcium and some other nutrients for horses. Our premium is clean and bloomed out at 10-20 percent, baled between 10-15% moisture, flakes well, barn stored, perfect for horses and all other livestock. Three string, 100lb bales. Nutrition information provided is on an "as fed" basis.

    ADF 27 %
    Calcium 1.54 %
    Crude Protein (min) 17.5 %
    NDF 32.3 %
    Potassium 1.36 %
    TDN 52.8 %
  • Alfalfa #2

    A step below our premium, #2 may have some weeds or may not flake as well, but is still suitable for those animals who prefer alfalfa but don't mind a few "extras". No noxious or toxic weeds, and contains no mold.

  • Orchard Grass

    Grown in the high desert climate of Northern Nevada, warm days and cool nights contribute to plush grass with deep blue-green hues. A single type of grass, versus a more traditional meadow or pasture grass, orchard is an option for those animals with allergies to other grasses or alfalfa. Nutrient content listed is on as "as fed" basis (not dry matter).

    Crude Protein (min) 13.32 %
    NSC 9.92 %
    TDN 50.36 %
  • Meadow Grass

    Meadow grass out of Smith Valley's 2020 crop! Nutrient content listed on an "as fed" basis (not dry matter).

    Crude Protein (min) 12.08 %
    NSC 8.18 %
    TDN 47.65 %
  • Alfalfa/Orchard/Fescue Grass Mix

    80/20 mix of orchard grass and alfalfa from the 2019 haying season. Cool weather of northern Nevada's high desert provides for a clean and healthy stand of Alfalfa and orchard grass.

  • Alfalfa/Wheat Mix

    Alfalfa with beardless wheat.

  • Beardless Wheat

    Beardless wheat provides some great benefits: it's a high fiber forage, it helps promote a healthy gut by eliminating/preventing impaction and keeping any ingested sand moving through the intestinal track, it has a mild protein content which makes it a good free-feed forage, it also has a high total digestible nutritional value, meaning the animal can draw a lot of nutrition out of the plant.
