Hay grown on Butternut Farms
Hay is grass, legumes or other herbaceous plants that have been cut, dried, and stored for use as animal fodder,
particularly for grazing livestock such as cattle, horses, goats, and sheep. Hay is also fed to pets such as rabbits and
guinea pigs. Pigs may be fed hay, but they do not digest it as efficiently as more fully herbivorous animals.
Hay is fed when or where there is not enough pasture or rangeland on which to graze an animal, when grazing is
unavailable due to weather (such as during the winter) or when lush pasture by itself is too rich for the health of the
animal. It is also fed during times when an animal is unable to access pasture, such as when animals are kept in a stable or barn.
