Timothy hay is a long fibre grass and is often used for cattle feed and as hay for horses. Timothy can be mixed with other ingredients such as alfalfa. In comparison with other forage crops, timothy is more digestible for cattle and horses. Fertile farmland in Western Canada is ideal for growing premium timothy hay. Long hours of sunshine during the growing season in combination with the somewhat cooler climate offer ideal conditions for the growth and production of forage products that are unsurpassed in quality anywhere in the world.
Alfalfa (or Lucerne) is often referred to as the “Queen of the forages” and is commonly used for dairy cattle, horses and beef cattle. It has the highest yield potential and one of the highest feeding values of all modified perennial forage legumes. It has a high protein and calcium content and a highly digestible fibre. Thanks to the anaerobic fermentation, alfalfa maintains high nutrient levels comparable to those of fresh forage. Alfalfa is rich in proteins, calcium, plus other minerals and vitamins A, B, C, D, E and K.

BENEFITTING BOTH FARMERS AND CUSTOMERS
With GreenCured we can eliminate some of the weather risks that growing hay can bring to farmers. The GreenCured program ensures earlier baling after cutting the hay, making sure that forages do not become bleached or are exposed to showers.
End users of GreenCured hay receive a product which is high in feed value and has a beautiful green colour!
Green Prairie’s forage products are compressed into bales that enable easy and efficient handling. Thanks to state-of-the-art compression facilities, Green Prairie can efficiently process forage crops to offer consumers a maximum return on investments. Our production facility is equipped with two self-designed, patented presses.
Jumbo Bale PressThis press is set up to accept chopped product to produce a 450 kg compressed bale in a sleeve. This bale is preferred by many large farms that incorporate these bales into total mixed ration (TMR). This facility has been set up to allow for the mixing of products to create custom blends of timothy and alfalfa.
Big Bale PressThe big bale press is designed to accept large 4×4 or 3×4 bales. These bales are sliced and compressed in a fully automated press that can produce at a rate up to 24 metric tonnes per hour. Through a cutter box, output bales are cut into smaller bales to the size preferred by the end user.
