Timothy hay cuttings – what is your pets favorite?
Often times we get asked questions that have to do with the different cuttings of timothy hay.
With that in mind, we decided to do this post which outlines the basic characteristics of all three cuttings.
1st cutting timothy hay characteristics
-Typically harvested in late spring/early summer.
-Highest fiber content, lowest protein and calcium. Small pets need a high fiber diet so this is one positive about 1st cutting.
-First cutting timothy hay typically has coarser stems, bigger heads, and a harder texture. Many small animals can have a harder time eating this hay and may refuse it all together.
2nd cutting timothy hay characteristics
Here at Small Pet Select we make it our business to find the very best timothy hay and deliver it fresh and direct for small pets throughout the United States.
But what goes into producing a top quality timothy hay? Why isn’t there more of this stuff around? What exactly separates an average quality timothy hay from a good quality timothy hay…and furthermore what separates a good quality timothy hay from the very best timothy hay?
These are some of the questions that often come up, and with that in mind we thought we’d run down a list of the top 5 factors that determine the quality of the hay for your small pet.
The Top 5 influential factors for producing the best timothy hay
Timothy Hay Quality Factor #1: The Climate and Growing Region
Fun Fact of the day: Did you know timothy hay arrived in North America by accident? Well, According to Wikepedia, it did!
Timothy hay is dried timothy grass. And early settlers in the late 1600s and early 1700s unintentionally introduced it to the North American landscape. It was the year 1711 when the first official recordings of the grass are known. The description was provided by a guy called John Hurd, who’d discovered the grass growing in New Hampshire. He named it “hurd grass.” But when a farmer named Timothy Hanson began to actively cultivate it to produce hay in 1720, people began to refer to it as “timothy hay.”
The name stuck, and it’s been timothy hay ever since… (Gotta feel sorry for poor John Hurd, eh!)

What is timothy hay? Is that a daft question to ask – not really, in our humble opinion. After all, how many of us are truly experts on all things hay? And being as it’s the most vital component in the diet of our small pets (along with water, naturally), then it’s a sensible question for any caring pet owner to want to understand.
So – let’s wind right back to basics when it comes to understanding more about timothy hay.
1. Timothy hay is dried timothy grass. Yep – in very simple terms, hay is grass that’s been cut at a certain point in its life cycle, then dried so that it can be stored and fed to our pets at a later date
