Buying hay is never difficult – but sometimes it does with the different choices in hand– different brands, different varieties, and different sizes. These one pound bags which most pet stores sell last only for a day. The expense and time of buying these efficiently got out of hand, and so we need to look for something that is more manageable. The type of hay one should purchase depends on climate, soil, location and the proposed use of the hay. The hay you purchase mush grow in the general area. Climate is the thing that generally determines the kind of hay grown in the area. Soil conditions may also cause a planter to sale a different kind of hay than standard for the region. The price of different types of hay vary from region to region. Shortages and similar circumstances may also influence the price of hay. The type of hay may also depends on the usage such as bedding, pasturage, and feed.
