The production of hay has never been an easy task, but in the past obtaining high quality product was relatively simple. Using Alfalfa as an example, the biggest importance was given to cutting at the correct moment (right before bloom) as well as drying and delivering product in short amounts of time. Hay was loosely baled at 16%-18% humidity allowing it to breath throughout the entire process, with no fermentation, therefore no mycotoxins. This would ensure livestock would receive high quality forage and in turn improve production and health of the animal.
Over the years the advancement of mechanical technology has lead to highly packed and dense bales. With bales like this it is impossible to have high moisture without the perils of loss of quality, fermentation and toxic debris. Attempts to work around these complications have included, the use of chemicals such as propionic acid to delay fermentation
