Hay prices go up and down depending on the old law of supply and demand.
Supply: Rainfall in California was excellent this past season and hay production on both irrigated and dryland hayfields was better than was originally expected. Roadside hay stacks , however, have been depleted and barnstored hay is in extremely tight hands going into the fall hay buying season.
Demand: Hay is grown in California to supply dairies, beef cattle, horses and the export market. Dairy cow numbers still remain low but beef cattle producers are on the market agressively buying hay to feed to their cowherds through the cold winter months ahead. Hay exporter have also entered the hay buying market pushing hay prices to levels higher than we have seen in over 18 months.
Results: This jump and upward movement in hay prices will probably continue on into the winter months.

Yes they are 35% Teff Grass and 65% Alfalfa.
And the good news?
The price is the same as the Oat & Alfalfa and the straight Alfalfa Cubes.
Teff Grass is proving to be an excellent replacement for the more expensive Timothy Hay.
If your horse is having digestive or metabolic problems, Teff Combination Cubes may be a good option for you.
