Hay is the product of any of a variety of perennial crops, typically grasses or legumes, that can be used a feed for ruminant animals.
Hay production in the United States exceeds 150 million tons per year. Alfalfa is the primary hay crop grown in this country. U.S. hay is produced mainly for domestic consumption although there is a growing export market.
According to the National Hay Association, the most common exports are timothy, some alfalfa, sudangrass, and bermudagrass hay.
Hay can be packaged in bales or made into cubes or pellets. Hay crops also produce seeds that can be used for planting or as specialized grains.
