First cutting hay is the high fiber stuff. It isn't as fattening as the later cuts, but has more of the flowery heads. It is not quite as soft as the 2nd and 3rd cut. It is meant for animals who have chronic GI/digestive tract issues, and require as much fiber as possible.

We have close relationships with the farmers in Washington State (where we started, and the home of one of our two warehouses). We personally choose what hay we like by going to fields, seeing and smelling and touching the crops. Then we hand pack every box that goes out, so we see it all again. Our eyes are on everything that comes to you, from the field to your door, so we can get you not only the best hay, but the most consistent hay. This keeps your friend's digestive system happy, and you know what to expect from us.
