Our second bermudagrass hay cutting is underway and we're finishing the fourth Alfalfa cutting today. We should be baling the bermudagrass fields by mid-week. The hot weather in the Houston area is bad for people but good for hay!

The nutrient analysis from the June 2020 cutting is back. Crude Protein and TDN requirements are different between horses and cattle and also differ according to the age, size, activity, and lactation situation of the animal. Crude Protein is an easy marker to check:

Horses -

  • Mature: 7.2-10%
  • Growing: 12-18%
  • Broodmare: 12-16%
source: Picking, Elizabeth Five Horse Nutrition Misconceptions, University of Missouri Extension, January 2019

Cow - 1000 lbs., 20 lbs. peak milk production
  • 1-4 months since calving: 10-11%
  • 5-11 months since calving: 8-9%
source: Hersom, Matt Basic Nutrition Requirements of Beef Cows, University of Florida IFAS Extension, January 2017

Equine Nutrition

Equine diets start with forage. Whether it's pasture or hay, horses' digestive systems are built to absorb nutrients from daily grazing activity. Along with plenty of water, good, leafy hay that is free of dust and mold should make up the largest part of a horse's diet.

Hybrid Jiggs bermudagrass makes an excellent source of structural fiber in an equine diet. It's soft and leafy enough to tempt the pickiest eaters. Like all grass hay (i.e. timothy, tall fescue, etc.) Bermudagrass hay is naturally low in sugar and starch.

Here are some handy links for information on nutrition requirements for horses:
