Re: Deciphering hay analsis
I'm wondering if all the time of day, lack of water does not apply to native grass. Here in the California Foothills once the rains stop late Winter/early Spring the grass dries up, it is 'natural' for these grasses life cycle. It 'springs to life' once the rains start again each year. The roots go down so deep and the grass is so tough it is almost impossible to kill with Roundup or tilling. I had my grass tested a year ago once it was dried up and the s/s was lower than any hay I had found. I do know when it's green, my horses have to be off it though. May be interesting to have it tested while in the green stage.
