Timothy Grass/Hay was unintentionally introduced to North America by early settlers and was first described in 1711 by John Hurd from plants growing in New Hampshire. Hurd named the grass “hurd grass” but a farmer named Timothy Hanson began to promote the cultivation of it as hay about 1720, and the grass has been known by its present name since then. Timothy has now become naturalized throughout most of the US and Canada.
Timothy, unlike alfalfa, has traditionally been graded and marketed based on qualitative factors like color, palatability, and stalk coarseness rather than measured protein. It is commonly grown for Cattle feed and, in particular, as hay for Horses, Camels.
Demand for Dryland timothy continues to be strong with Dairies and with high-performance Horses around the world. It is relatively high in fiber. Our Timothy is often more desirable than late cut, It is often softer, sweeter and contains less “brown leaf” and is, therefore, more palatable than late cut. It is considered part of the standard mix for grass hay and provides quality nutrition for horses.
Timothy hay is a staple food for domestic pet rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas, and degus, often making up the bulk of their diet. Timothy hay is rich in long fiber and its abrasive texture helps to grind down the teeth, keeping both the teeth and jaw in good order.
We are associated with Canadian family-owned and operated processing facilities to market Timothy Hay and Varieties of mixed Hay who are exporting Timothy Hay since 1994. Our Associate’s compaction and drying equipment are designed and manufactured in house which allows them to be cost-competitive and to quickly respond to changing market demands.
Advantage of buying from our associates as they provide exclusively Dry-Land Timothy which is a more natural growing process. Dryland hay in their area only gets one cutting and relies on natural rainfall for irrigation. Because of this, dryland hay demonstrates improved palatability. There are fewer chemicals added to the soil, including fertilizer, which AVOIDS sour taste in Timothy Hay supplied by them and Cattle, Horses, and Camels loves that.
