About the Operation

Alfalfa Hay Cubes

Alfalfa Hay Cubes

Situated in one of the top 50 alfalfa producing counties in the United States, Wyoming Hay Cubes is in an ideal area for growing alfalfa hay.  Since annual precipitation is less than 10 inches per year, the operation produces dry hay with no mold.  Additionally, the farm is located on an irrigation project supplied from the Wind River Drainage.  As a result, water is consistently available.  Given the dry summer conditions and ample supply of irrigation water, harvesting can generally be achieved under dry conditions, resulting in top quality alfalfa.

 

The operation typically takes two cuttings of hay annually.  The first cutting usually occurs in early July, and the second is in mid-September.  The hay is harvested using a big baler, producing 4′ x 4′ x 8′ bales.  These bales are then used to feed a stationary cuber, which processes the hay into small cubes.  The stationary cuber grinds the hay, applies a small amount of water, and then compresses the hay into cubes (1 1/4 inches square).
