Hello,I wanted to know if anyone had any information about hay. My mares are due soon. I was told not to give hay that has been fert with chicken manure stuff. I am having trouble finding hay , the only people who have hay has been fert with chicken manure.What do you all know about this? I was told it only hurts the pregnant mares, not the other horses.
Help!!!
THANKS MELISSA

Here in Kansas we don't have that problem, not very many chicken farms. I'm supposing that the problem would be the nitrates. Have you asked your local farmers to run a test on the hay? The test will give the RFV (relative food Value) and it will also tell what the nitrate levels are. You can also grab a few handfulls and put it in a gallon sized bag or a plastic grocery bag and take it to your local vet or extension agent and they can send it in for you. Here the test costs $15.
