One of the things that I care most about is our animals, not only how they live but what they eat.
The hay that I purchase is from wheat and comes from the southern merkaz area of Israel including places like Ashdod, Kiryat Gat, and Sderot where there are lots of fields.
The hay is primarily for the cows but also for some lambs. It consists of the leftover stalks after the wheat is taken out.
The process of removing the grain from the stalks is undertaken by a large machine that rides over the field. It cuts the stalks and removes the grain helping to separate the two for their respective purposes.
The grain will eventually be used for both human and sometimes animal consumption. The leftover wheat stalks become the large bales of hay you see here already delivered to my farm.
