Medium Timothy Hay should have these qualities:
Harvest: Second or first cut of pure Timothy Hay
Color: Described as a hunter or true green.
Stems/Stalks: The stems of Medium Hay should be thin, less than 1/16th of an inch, however, an occasional thicker stem (stalk) is not uncommon. Most of the stems should be solid, almost wiry in feel. Medium Hay is softer than Coarse Timothy because of the lower number of stems and higher number of leaves.
Leaves: Leaves should be broad and more than half the total amount of hay.
Seed Heads/Flowers: The seed heads, also called flowers, should be fully developed and will generally be between 1-2 inches long on average with small purple wisps. The seed heads of Medium Timothy should be noticeably shorter and smaller than Coarse Timothy, with fewer in number.
Our goal is to offer the highest quality hay, however, all naturally grown and harvested hay holds minor imperfections such as dust, weeds, leaf crush, and brown leaf. The ideal version of Medium Timothy Hay would have none of these.
