so I need hay I can get a ton of montana alfalfa, 80-100lb bales for $500, i can afford 2 tons I know my goats will do well on this, gain a lot and look better. OR 2.6 tons of local brome/timothy mix hay, 65lb bales for $900 My goats are currently on this hay and they're maintaining weight, a few of my does should gain. Thing is the will the alfalfa last any longer than the lower quality hay? I still have 6 months of winter before growing season starts. So I could get 2 tons of the alfalfa but would it outlast the other hay?? :? by outlast i mean wil the goats go through it faster?
