Australia’s Only Recognised Quality Grading System
We have trialled, tested and developed Australia’s only recognized quality grading and quality assurance system for domestic hay. We take the visual assessment of hay very seriously and understand that animals prefer highly attractive hay with a fresh aroma. We also understand that many of our customers (such as chaff mills, dairies and feedlots) have a very specific visual requirements, including colour, stem length, stem thickness, moisture, conditioning type and a host of other measurements that cannot be tested via a Feed Test.
