  • Wilmoth Recognized with Meritorious Service Award
  • Winter hay needs for horses

    It’s hard to believe that winter is right around the corner. If you’re a horse owner, you should already be preparing your winter hay supplies.

    How do you estimate the amount of hay you will need? If you have mature horses at maintenance level, you want to feed a mainly forage diet.

    The estimate would be similar to a 1,100-pound horse eating 2 percent of its body weight. That equals 22 pounds of hay per day. Feeding for 120 days, December through March would equal 1.3 tons of hay per horse.
