Advantages of Hay-Rite Alfalfa Cubes

Reduced feed waste. Feeding studies reveal that as much as 20% of conventional hay may be wasted when fed. Horses fed long-stem hay can separate the leaves from the stems and consume the parts they prefer; this does not happen with cubes.

Controlled feed intake. It is easier for the horse owner to monitor and regulate the daily intake of cubed forage than long-stem hay.

Consistent nutrient content. The nutrient levels found in cubes tend to be more consistent than hay. Alfalfa cubes are sold with a guaranteed minimum nutrient content.

Less dust than long-stem hay. Alfalfa cubes contain little dust, so they represent a healthy dietary choice for horses with respiratory problems.

Reduced storage requirements. Cubes are denser than hay and therefore require less storage space. Approximately 3 bags of cubes fit in the same area as an average-sized, small-square bale of hay.

Ease of handling. Cubes can be mechanically handled in bulk.

Reduced transportation costs. Cubes are denser than hay and allow trucks to be loaded to their full legal capacity. This is not always possible with hay. Shipping costs for cubes can be reduced, assuming the shipping distance is the same.

Ease of transport. Alfalfa cubes take up less space in the trailer and may be easier for horse owners to take to shows or on trail rides.
