I know I've talked about this before, but I can't find the old thread and I have more questions...

What is a fair price for loose hay sold by the pound?

What is an ideal grass mix? I'm thinking Timothy and clover.

I recall in my last post about rabbit feeding someone mentioned sticks to keep teeth worn down... What kind of price for run of the mill poplar sticks?

Thanks everyone!!

We used to cut sticks from trees and give to ours. Fed ours pellets and alfalfa. And greens from the garden. Lots of fresh water.

Rather than straight alfalfa pellets get pelleted rabbit ration, it has the essential minerals etc. in it that rabbits require. Ours also got whole oats as well as the already mentioned garden treats, mixed alfalfa/brome grass hay and sticks (poplar,maple or willow, with the bark on) to keep their teeth in check. Fresh water at all times; those drip waterers with the ball in them that they lick at are good, easier to keep the water clean and minimal mess in the pen. Treats should be just that, treats. The main diet was the pellets, oats and mixed hay.

He is looking to sell them, not buy them and is wondering what our opinion is.

I'm gonna go with not available because of my current position. Stepmom is one of those vegetarian no animal killing types, bad enough we can't even have beef cows or dairy goats because she almost automatically assumes that anyone who has livestock with the intent of selling/raising for meat is a bloodthirsty savage.

But I'm all for making smoked rabbit treats, those things are complete jerks!

Not their fault that they thought I was buying... I wasn't clear enough with that point.

So does anyone have a good price per pound idea for hay cut with a gt and mower deck?

Eventualky I'd like to get fancy and get an estate rake, to speed up the efficiency and get more seat time.

If you sell off the hay, what is your step mom going to eat?

Well, she will go and steal the food right out of my boss's poor cows mouths, taking their soybeans to make some tofu crap...

Plants are technically living creatures. They need food. Water. Certain climates. Grow and reproduce. Get old. Die.

Sounds like life to me.

Poor plants she is eating up....
