Many horse owners have said that their horses won’t eat when fed teff grass hay. But not Conway Feed's Teff hay. Here's why.
When growing Teff, a farmer can get three times the yield from their crop by waiting to harvest after the seed heads hit their maturity. The problem is, horses find the seeds bitter and don’t like them. We have what we believe is the best Teff grown anywhere in the country. Our Teff is grown as a rotational crop with vegetables in sunny Arizona. The soil is fertile, and Teff loves the sunshine.
Furthermore, our growers are some of the best in the United States, and they harvest and bale the Teff before the heads start to form. Harvesting in this way assures the highest nutrient value and palatability of our Teff hay. It is good quality forage that horse owners, ranchers, and farmers will approve of, and horses will love!
