 I had my hay tested but I’m not sure how to know if it’s “good” or if I need to supplement or change my feed program for balancing. Anyone know how? I can text or email the results if that works

I would contact your state equine extension agent. They are literally employed, and your tax dollars support them generally, to help people interpret results. They certainly can help you balance rations and supplements too.

Your county extension agent should be able to help and will also be familiar with deficiencies etc in your area.

2 main things to look for are protein and TDN, total digestable nutrients. those 2 items give you lots info.
