We are fortunate enough to live in one of the high mountain valleys that produce some of the best alfalfa hay in the world. Unfortunately due to weather circumstances sometimes the alfalfa gets rained on after it is cut and laying in windrows in the field. Major problems arise and the hay becomes bleached, looses it nutritional value, and is only fit for cow hay. Regardless some farmers will go ahead, bale it, bleached, moldy and send it to the cubers. They in turn put this substandard, hay into cubes adding green dye in the process to make it 'look' fresh and green. Don't be fooled. Not all hay cubes are the same and not all hay cubes are from FRESH cut quality alfalfa. If you are feeding cubes and your horse is coughing or wheezing you may have cubed 'cow' hay. Be safe out there and keep turning. HUGS.

I stopped feeding cubes all together.  They were all dusty and made me cough when pouring them into the barrel.  My horse hasnt coughed since
