Anyone know if teff grass hay is ok for wethers? It's 5 bucks a bale cheaper than orchard grass hay around here (but still not cheap at 11 bucks a bale) - there's a cheaper grass hay at 9 bucks a bale called Sudan grass, but I thought I heard it wasn't a great goat hay. These goats are keeping me poor!

Timothy, Orchard and Teff all run about the same in nutritional values. Crude protein between 8 and 14 percent and has a calcium content of 0.26 to 0.27 percent. So if you can get it cheaper and its still good quality, do it :)

Good to know - thanks Dave! I hope the guy still has some... The friend who was going to pick up a load for me last week ended up with a very sick horse going down with seizures and the vet hasn't figured out what's wrong yet - poor guy!
