Re: Hay Analysis

Hi Karen,

If you suspect Montana Rose might have been sore on this hay, I would have the 644 Carb Pack at Equi-Analytical done on it (wet chemistry for ESC, WSC and starch).  This would not be the first ultra-low sugar hay (as per initial NIR test) that came back much higher when retested.  Generally the difference seems to be about 20% but we had one case last year where the hay was much higher and not safe to feed.  Your first hay analysis may not be completely out to lunch.
