World Feeder Bermuda Grass, square and round bales
Currently, 20,000 to 30,000 tons are available for the Florida market (based on
demand). WFBG is excellent horse and dairy-quality cattle hay. NEL levels vary between .70 -.74. Protein varies upwards of 20%-24%. It contains a very high sugar content which causes livestock to prefer it's taste over that of high quality alfalfa. In recent dairy cattle tests versus alfalfa, results have shown increased milk production, butterfat content, protein levels, and reduced forage costs. This hybrid grass maintains an extremely deep root system which makes it more drought and freeze tolerant than any other type of hay known.
