Timothy grass is one of the most popular cool-seasoned perennial grasses. Timothy is highly palatable to livestock and produces high quality forage for hay and grazing. It is a premium feed for horses and calves. It is known for being rich in nutrients and high forage quality.
Timothy grows best on rich, moist bottomland and on finer textured soils, such as clay loams. The best quality is found in cold climates and mountain areas. Timothy grass does not tolerate drought and periods of prolonged high temperatures above 25 degrees C.
Ceads timothy hay is premium quality and comes only from the Eastern part of the mountainous region where the highest temperature even in summer does not exceed 23 degrees C.
The highest quality of Timothy hay is typically harvested at the early flowering stage, when it is rich in nutrients and is very tender. The quality of hay may degrade as the plant matures past the blooming stage, so it is very important to harvest the hay at the proper time in growth cycle. We always strive to produce the best quality and highest nutritional value hay by harvesting our hay at an early point of maturity.
