I am bumping this because feed prices are out of control. I pay 28.00 for Timothy and I have room to store a ton but not at that price.
Look forward to hearing any ideas.....
I just bought 30 bales of Timothy at 22.95 per bale from Cantrell's Feed Bin
in Walnut/Rowland Hts. They are easily accessable off the 60 freeway. They also will deliver at no charge. It is better than the last load I purchased from San Dimas at higher prices, imho.
Yes, please post when you find places for Timothy in So. Calif. It is getting
to be WAY to expensive, and we all need to check out the options available!

I just bought some timothy hay from Paramount cubing (aka Rhomberg mills) and it isn't the greatest quality. I am thinking it is a second cutting - it had a lot of brown leaf in it and was very stringy. My horse is extremely picky, but he is eating it OK. The other horses seem to eat it as well though without gusto. Their orchard looked better on the other hand.
I wish I could store more hay - but my feed room only allows for 15 or so bales. I wish I could buy it in bigger quantities!
Hi all! Has anyone considered using teff/tiffany grass hay? I am in Yucaipa [near Redlands--check out All Seasons in Calimesa] and the price of teff is now $16.50/bale. Tests very similar to timothy and the horses love it. It can be grown in hot, dry climates, so we are getting it from Blythe/Imperial Valley and Arizona. Also available in pellets. In NORCO, talk to Linda's ~ they are very knowledgeable.

I previously used to own some horses and I needed a few bails here and there. I live in Brawley, CA, and I got all of my hay from Imperial Hay Sales, Inc. in Westmorland, CA. They ship to pretty much all of southern California, but it's probably in larger quantities (I'd assume, at least). Hit them up on their website, www.imperialhaysales.com I definitely recommend them because of their customer service and their overall attitude towards new customers. The owner, Tom Gray, is a pretty nice guy who wont bs you and knows his stuff. Like I said, hit them up on their website for more information, I wouldn't want to give direct numbers or addresses in case they change in the future and I'd have to come back and edit this post later, all their info on the site's kept up to date.
