|During the hay shortage of 2012/13 we decided to give Chaffhaye a try as we were impressed with the reports of the quality of product and milk production increase.Admittedly, part of what drove the decision was the hay prices that winter. Prices were running around $9/bale for low quality 50lb bales of grass hay.After making arrangements to gain the use of a Bobcat, we put in our first order for Chaffhaye. We immediately started mixing it in to our current feed routine, and by a couple days they were wanting more. In a short time, friends were commenting that the goats looked the best that they ever had, with nice shiny coats in a winter that was following droughts and poor hay.I could go on an on about all the good things we experience on this product, and may add more as time goes on and we’ve had a longer chance to work with this product. We continue to use it due to the quality of product. We’ve found that it is excellent for the llamas also.Our clients raise a variety of animals, such as deer, horses, and sheep. All have reported good results. The horse boarding facility uses it because of it’s consistency over regular hay, which keeps one of the horses from foundering that normally would on hay due to changes in protein between different bales.
