Re: IR, COPD mare

Hi Becky,

It is my understanding the steaming kills mold spores and as long as it is dried thoroughly, to prevent mold, it should be safe to feed.

Sounds like you have a plan!

All the best,

Hi Dr. Getty, The dealer for the ADM Alliance is 60 miles away
She has no problem eating and her appetite is good...she loves Alfalfa hay, she just does not want her hay wet....she turns her nose up at beetpulp.
She gets MSM, spirulina,vit. C and balanced minerals.

Do you know if steaming hay kills mold spores? What about after the steamed hay has dried?
Steaming hay is an option im looking into.

She had decided she would rather eat her wet hay cubes than starve but steaming hay may be an option.

Thanks, Becky
