Educating horse owners about what it takes to produce high-quality hay and the importance of good hay in equine diets is an ongoing challenge for hay growers selling into that market.

They may want to consider directing customers to a PowerPoint presentation developed by University of Minnesota Extension equine specialist Krishona Martinson. “Optimizing Your Hay Supply” offers horse-nutrition basics and tips on buying quality hay. Also included are sections on hay testing, reducing feeding and storage waste and feeding examples.
