Baled Alfalfa —. Hay should be stored in a cool, dry place with good air circulation (don't close it tightly in a plastic bag - a brown paper bag or pillow case works well). Discard wet or damp hay, or any hay that does not have a "fresh" smell. One good way to offer the hay is to use hay basket or rack or no waste hay rack, whatever your rabbit prefers.

      “The alternative forage (hay cube or hay pellet) should be the same hay type as the hay,” she adds. “For example, if timothy hay is being fed, a timothy hay cube should also be fed.”. Alfalfa Hay is a main staple and one of the most highly sought after forages in the world. Grown in the Snake River Basin of Idaho, our Alfalfa Cubes contain some of the highest protein of any forage grown in the United States.

This can be a real benefit if storage space is .

Hay cubes have advantages: • Nutritional value: Quality cubes are made from hays cut at their peak feeding value. • Hypoallergenic: Cubes are much lower in dust and mold spores than baled hays. • Shelf life: Because of their low moisture content, low mold content and that they’re bagged, cubes hold nutritional value : Horsejournal.

A huge benefit of feeding cubes was the ability for each horse to get a consistent amount of feed each time. As you know, baled hay is fed in flakes that vary in size and weight. Feeding two flakes from one bale might mean ten pounds. MINIMIZING LOSSES IN HAY STORAGE AND FEEDING Each year more than 60 million acres of forage crops are harvested for hay in the United States.

Annual production from this acreage is over million tons of hay valued at more than 12 billion dollars. Hay is the most widely grown mechanically-harvested agro-nomic crop in the United Size: 2MB. Laub's Feeding & Cubing. Watch later. Copy link. Info. Shopping. Tap to unmute.

Approximately 3 bags of cubes fit in the same area as an average-sized, small-square bale of hay. Approximately 3 bags of cubes fit in the same area as an average-sized, small-square bale of hay. Paramount Cubing has been making hay cubes for over 40 years. We rely on the world renowned alfalfa found right here in Delta, Utah and all throughout the Rocky Mountains.

Our customers ranging from Hawaii to Texas know that nothing beats premium hay conveniently stored in a cube. Hay soaking & ground level feeding have never been so easy, mess free & time saving!. Testimonial 1.

After looking at them for ages I took the plunge and brought a Haycube!. Had my Haycube nearly 3 months now and I love it. Mhairi took to it straight away without and issues.

She doesn't gorge her hay as I had first feared, I've found her bed is. Cube-styled storage certainly has a modern touch, but the mix of metal and rich woods give the Belham Living Trenton 6-Cube Narrow Bookcase a timeless style that's informed by the classics.

The multi-cubby design is perfect for books, decorative objects. My horses also get fed regular hay in addition to the cubes. The hay we have here is not always the best quality which is why I give them the cubes. Plus delivery and storage of hay can be problematic in the winter.

When feeding cubes, I notice that the horses will just pick at the hay, so I don't have to buy as much hay. My 28 year old won't eat grass hay, and is now having a bit of trouble with alfalfa cubes and pellets. I'm thinking soaking may be the way to help her.

In order to get enough soaked and available for free choice feeding, I'm thinking that I might use a muck bucket for soaking and feeding. Would need two--one to soak and one to feed. Myth: Cubes need to be soaked before feeding.

Fact: Cubes contain 10 - 12 % moisture, like hay. As with any feed, a good supply of clean, fresh water should be easily accessible. Cubes MAY be soaked for older horses with poor teeth. Myth: Cubes are dehydrated and will swell in the belly.

Fact: AlfaTec cubes are compressed, not dehydrated. In addition to alfalfa cubes, HAY-RITE developed several alfalfa pellets and COMPLETE feeds enriched with vitamins, minerals and fats for horses and other livestock. HAY-RITE pellets and COMPLETE Feeds are forage based, with rice bran and other nutrients added.

New Braunfels Feed now carries CubeIt Alfalfa Cubes. These cubes are made with sun-cured alfalfa from Snake River Valley, Idaho by Cubeit Hay Company. Your horse is sure to get the nutrients it needs from the Cubeit Alfalfa Cubes and is less mess than bales.

See some of the reasons why cubes are better below with information from CubeIt: 1. Alfalfa cubes are lightweight and denser than bulky.

Producer Question from Q: I have been told that it is less costly and just as beneficial to feed protein cubes to my herd instead of hay. Can you tell me how many pounds of 20% protein cubes I would need to feed per week to keep my late-term cows in their current body condition or if this is even a good or bad idea.

My cows weigh to pounds. Laub’s Feeding & Cubing offers three different grades of Hay Cubes. All hay is home grown, cut, and compressed in Beryl, Utah. Grade “A” has slightly higher protein count which is recommended for very active horses, Grade “A-” is for those right in the middle, and we also have mini cubes.

Forage cubes often have a higher digestible energy value than mature baled hay, as they are harvested at optimal maturity when digestible fiber (neutral detergent fiber) levels are greatest. One disadvantage of feeding only forage cubes is the lack of long-stem fiber, which may lead to the horse seeking other sources of fiber to satisfy this need.

Soaking hay for horses can be invaluable when feeding a hay that is a little dusty as a result of soil contamination or where it was stored in the barn. Horses that have allergies and are sensitive to the natural dust and particles in hay can benefit significantly from wetting or soaking hay.

feed to cattle, horses, sheep or goats as supplement to replace some hay or stretch existing hay supply. feed at a rate of ½ to 1 percent of bodyweight. feed rate may be adjusted depending on desired body condition.

keep feed in cool dry storage. clean water should be available at all times. Because cubes are so much more dense than baled hay, they are a great alternative for horse owners with limited amount of storage space.

Roughly 3 - 50 pound bags of hay cubes will fit in the same amount of space used by a 50 pound bale of hay. By not using a hay ring, you would be wasting approximately 45 tons of hay over the feeding period.

Another tip is when feeding high-protein cubes (37 to 41 percent all-natural crude protein) to dry cows grazing dormant pasture, consider feeding every second or third day. For example, if you are feeding lbs./hd./day consider feeding 2 lbs.platinum coach 4 horse LQ. Proline conversions 8’ short wall LQ.

If you pack in all of your feed, then I suggest alfalfa-grass mix cubes. I am not a fan of packing in hay because of the widespread destruction created by rampant weeds from these practices.
