Tested grass hay results - what do you all think?


familyjudith <jfamily@...>
 

Everyone: I am offered some tested grass hay. Equi-Analytical Lab
results state that the (as sampled) percentages are as follows:
ESC is 7.0,
starch 1.5,
crude Protein 10.8,
est. Lysine .37
ADF 33.9
NDF 58.4
NFC 14.0
calcium .43
Phosphorus .26

% moisture 8.4
% dry Matter 91.6

The sugar and starch look good to me. I am not certain about the
others. Any other thoughts out there before I buy???
Thanks, Judi and Tawny

Hi Judi,
The #s you have there look good but you're missing some important ones! Magnesium and all the traces...is there more info. available?
