Livestock Animal Hay ̶ USDA Quality Designations
We have 11 hay test results for this year from 5 different types of hay. Anything less than 12% is considered 'very good' NSC results.
Perhaps you have a horse in moderate to high work, that needs more protein … and you want low sugar…ask for our alfalfa mixed hay. Our alfalfa mixed hay in inventory is low sugar. This is because it is not only the hay type (not just straight grass) that makes it low sugar but how it is made. Here is an interesting article discussing that.
Currently, we have tested 11 different hay samples ranging from 5.26% NSC to 12.55% NSC in our 5 different types of hay we produce.
And, we have small and large square bales and round bales (all stored indoors) in inventory. Call for animal hay availability & ask about our pasture hay feeders!
"I just went on a tour of the farm. Great quality hay and even better, great customer assistance. They helped us find the best mix of hay for our horses. I also tried the Superior Straw bedding and it’s fantastic. Super soft and instantly reduced the odors. I’ve always been a wood shaving user and I’m sold on the shredded dust-free straw of Superior Straw! Thanks so much, Galusha Farm and Steve!!" - Kells Shaw
"This is my second year feeding Galusha Farm hay. I have nothing but good to say about the hay and the people that work there because they really stand behind their product. My horses need to stay in top shape to compete and their performance is excellent since feeding Galusha hay. I am very picky about my hay and couldn’t be happier. I am trying to create more space so I can get all my hay filled by Galusha Farm!!!" - Annette Harris, Newark, IL

Busy, busy, busy...ordering seed for 100 acres of new hay field establishment, for this year's sowing for next year's harvest and beyond! So far our existing hay fields look good for the 2023 production, even though there was not a lot of snow cover for frost protection this winter.
The men are busy doing preventative maintenance on all the hay equipment, machines, balers, and tractors, The shop is full and we have a line-up outside the shop doors in order to rotate them inside. Everybody must stand in line from time to time.
We will be ready to start the hay harvest right on time, if the weather allows, on May 10th!
Here's to a great start in 2023.
