What Makes Oxbow Hay Special?

For decades, we’ve worked hand in hand with our family of farmers to grow hay that meets the specific nutritional needs and taste and texture preferences of even the pickiest of pets. 

In the field, our hay experts go the “extra acre” to evaluate key quality attributes essential to the production of premium hay.  These attributes include color, texture, maturity, and stem-to-leaf ratio.

At Oxbow, our product quality team samples, grades, and nutritionally tests our hay to make sure it’s up to the challenge of nourishing your pet.  This includes 3rd party nutritional and food safety testing, and organoleptic analysis which assesses odor, flavor, appearance, and texture.

Oxbow hay is gently combed to loosen it from the bale.  Next, we carefully sort out smaller pieces, removing any natural foreign materials.  Finally, we extract as much natural dust from the hay as possible & expertly sort the hay by hand for that extra personal touch.
