Chaffhaye's Hay in a Bag offers significant nutritional, practical, and economic
benefits over dusty hay, pelleted feeds and other high-cost concentrates. We guarantee that Chaffhaye's
Pasture in a Bag is the most nutritious, easily digested forage product on the market today, and we are
committed to maintaining that leadership into the future.
Top Quality - A feed is only as good as its ingredients. Pure and simple. Chaffhaye is premium alfalfa, cut at
the nutritional peak of the crop and bagged within hours of harvest to lock in freshness and natural plant
juices. Chaffhaye is a superior source of roughage, protein, fat, vitamins and minerals. Chaffhaye is used to
establish appetite in animals and support suitable levels of feed intake to ensure maximum growth and
Highly Digestible - Airtight packaging locks in the nutritional value of premium forage. The fermentation process in
the bag produces beneficial bacteria, enzymes and yeast that aid digestion, maintains proper pH balance, and
supports animals in extracting more energy and nutrition from forage. With consistent quality, the digestive
systems of horses and livestock no longer need to compensate for variations that occur in baled hay.
Chaffhaye helps eliminate digestive disorders, and is successfully used to establish the healthy microflora
in the gut of weaning animals. Because of improved assimilation of its nutrients by the animal, Chaffhaye is
used to improve the immune defense in stressed animals after travel, antibiotics, wormers or
Highly Palatable - Chaffhaye's Pasture in a Bag is distinctive for its soft leafiness, natural sweetness, pleasant
aroma and dust-free characteristics. It is coarsely chopped to reduce the incidence of choking. Excellent for
restoring appetite or feeding finicky eaters.
Easy Storage - A ton of Chaffhaye occupies only 1/3 the space of baled alfalfa. Sealed bags allow storage indoor
or outdoors, with no loss of quality. Unique packaging eliminates mess or leaf loss normally associated with
moving baled hay.
No Hay Barns or Tarps Required!Easy to Transport - Its compact form and high nutrition density is easier and cheaper to transport. Ideal for
Can your dry hay do this?
Free, Free, Free, Free -
Chaffhaye's Pasture in a Bag is dust free, mold free, blister-beetle free and weed seed
free. Being dust and mold free as a naturally moist feed, Chaffhaye is used to minimize the respiratory
ailments of animals sensitive to dust or mold spores. Additionally, the fermentation process permanently
blocks the germination of seed that may be in the forage, making it ideal for national parks or environments
where foreign seeds are controlled.
Less Waste - Animals normally eat 100% of Chaffhaye fed. As a "pre-digested" forage, animals can assimilate (or
absorb) more of its energy and vital nutrients. Animals on Chaffhaye produce up to 50% less manure, reducing
fly populations and barnyard cleanup time. Chaffhaye has a two-year shelf life with no loss of nutritional
value. Reduces "HayBelly" - Animals have less intestinal fill because less Chaffhaye is required to achieve
nutritional needs. Within ten days of feeding, the stomach will begin to tuck in. This makes Chaffhaye the
ideal feed for saddled and show animals.
Cost Effective - Chaffhaye's Pasture in a Bag is cost effective due to a combination of factors including: Superior
nutrition as a premium rated forage; Reduced transportation and storage costs; Long-shelf life due to
weather-proof, airtight packaging; High palatability that reduces waste during feeding; Up to 50% less manure
that reduces stall cleaning; Reduced vet bills from respiratory ailments caused by dust as well as reduced
risk of colic as a pasture-like feed. Nutritionally, one bag of Chaffhaye is equal to 1.5 bales of good
Customizable - By mixing Chaffhaye Alfalfa and Chaffhaye Grass in the desired ratio, you have the power to
customize the protein and fiber levels of the ration to fit your specific need. Refer to the feeding chart
provided under the FAQ-Horse section of this website.

As horses and other animals age, their digestive system becomes slower
and less efficient. Teeth problems and trouble chewing can only make matters worse. As a
result, it is harder for senior animals to receive the energy, protein, vitamins and minerals
necessary to maintain good health and conditioning. Without proper nutrition, your senior
animal becomes more susceptible to diseases and parasites.
With its high
quality, easily digested nutrients, Chaffhaye is the ideal feed for senior animals. Being
naturally moist, it is easy to chew, even by animals with few teeth. No longer will nutrition
be lost by soaking the
feed in water. Chaffhaye is ready to consume straight out of the
bag. Also, the natural plant juices in Chaffhaye help maintain the fluid balance in the
hindgut of older animals. Without proper fluid balance the hindgut can become dry causing life
threatening impaction and colic.
Based on direct feedback from our customers, Chaffhaye has made
a significant improvement in the health of senior animals, many of which have been on the
product for over 15 years.
Certified Weed Seed Free
According to the National Forest Service,
thousands of acres of public lands nationwide are lost each day to invasive non-native weeds.
More and more, the National Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, and
National Park Service are requiring the use of certified weed-free
feed when horse-camping, packing or staying on federal lands. Because Chaffhaye undergoes
an all-natural fermentation process, the germination of seeds in the forage is eliminated. In
fact, Chaffhaye has been independently tested and certified as Weed Free Forage. As
an example, a Certification by the Nevada Department of Agriculture
Blister beetle poisoning can occur from
ingesting blister beetles (dead or alive) that are present in alfalfa. While ruminants are
relatively immune to the toxin in blister beetles, horses are especially sensitive.
Depending on the number of beetles ingested, symptoms in equine can include mild fever, severe
colic and even death due to shock and cardiac failure. For this reason, Chaffhaye Inc. is
vigilant against blister beetle infiltration. Even though blister beetles are not
indigenous to our area, we continually monitor all fields making certain blister beetles do
