Our Products

The Hay We Sell


When grading Alfalfa, there are specific things we look at: Color, amount of leaf, stem size, weed population, age of cutting, and age of the field. We have 5 different qualities. Prices are determined by markets, quality and availability.

Bermuda Grass

We have 2 different qualities.

Paca Verde

Paca Verde is a mixture of rye grass and alfalfa. This great feed for those that do not want to feed strait alfalfa and still get the same benefits from without some of the negatives. The alfalfa provides a higher level of protein in a low dosage, while the rye ads good starch with lower amounts of protein. Most, but not all horses eat this feed without a problem. Steve Bales Sr. feeds his personal horses Paca Verde.
