What is Timothy Hay?

Timothy Hay, named after an American farmer from the eighteenth century, is a variety of grass hay that is high in fibre, and low in protein, sugar and calcium making it ideal for your small pet’s digestive system, teeth and overall health.

This premium variety is abundant and native to most of Europe except for the Mediterranean region and is one of the Phleum genus (grasses native to temperate regions), consisting of about 15 species of annual and perennial grasses.

A good quality Timothy Hay should look green, smell fresh and be free from dust and mould. If stored well, Timothy Hay can last for several years.

Why is Timothy Hay so good?

There are three distinct parts to a strand of Timothy Hay, all of which provide the ideal feed for large and small herbivores, from high performance race horses to pet rabbits, guinea pigs, chinchillas and other small pets. Many types of hay on the market can be suitable for bedding, but small pet feeding hay should contain at least 7% protein and 13% fibre.

With a high fibre and protein content and a low sugar content, Newhay’s Timothy Hay is better quality than meadow and other standard hays making it more palatable and great for encouraging chewing in small pets to maintaining healthy teeth.
