Andrea, is this a ryegrass hay? The only time I’ve seen WSC that much higher than ESC was with ryegrass. Also, does the lab report say what method was used to test ESC? Some members have found that NIR testing may return lower ESC values than wet chem testing on the same hay—so if your ESC was done by NIR, it may actually be higher  than 8.5%.
